    DNB Publishes Insurance and Banking Newsletters

    February 04, 2020

    DNB published the banking and insurance newsletters. The newsletters cover the Supervision Outlooks for banks and insurers, with focus in the banking sector being on business model and profitability, operational risks, digitization, the fight against financial and economic crime, and sustainability. The banking newsletter contains the updated QIS calendar for banks.

    The newsletters highlight post-Brexit it remains unclear how the future relationship between the EU and the UK will be shaped after 2020. It is, therefore, important that banks and insurers to prepare for this because, from 2021, bottlenecks can arise in cross-border services between the EU and the UK. The insurance newsletter, in specific, highlights that, in 2020, DNB will conduct research into risk management by insurers in the context of Pillar 2 (governance and risk management). DNB will use the thematic review to assess whether the manner in which insurers implement the entire set of requirements from Pillar 2 of Solvency II is appropriate for their risk profile. DNB also aims to look at risks in the areas of climate change, cyber risks, and low interest rates in the 2020 study. Additionally, in 2020, DNB will strive to achieve convergence within Europe with regard to the supervision of internal models, operational and cyber risks, supervision of cross-border activities, and the use of data and technology by national supervisors.
