Earlier this month, EIOPA hosted its third annual Conference on Global Insurance Supervision. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for exchanges between national supervisors, the insurance industry and other interested parties. The conference focused topics including the impact of the low interest rate environment on insurance, global trends in risk-based supervision, upcoming challenges in the implementation of global standards, consumer protection as a supervisory focus and regulatory developments in emerging markets. A summary report of discussions, and key presentations, are available on EIOPA's website.
