    OSFI Proposes Guideline on Internal Model Oversight for Insurers

    June 21, 2019

    OSFI proposed the draft guideline E-25 on the internal model oversight framework for federally regulated property and casualty (P&C) insurance companies. The guideline outlines OSFI expectations for insurers when establishing and maintaining an oversight framework with policies and procedures that identify, assess, and manage risks of internal models used to determine regulatory capital requirements, in accordance with the OSFI Minimum Capital Test (MCT) guideline. The comment period on this consultation ends on August 30, 2019 and OSFI intends to finalize the guideline for publication by the end of 2019.

    The guideline applies to insurers that have received approval to use an internal model. If OSFI were to approve a P&C insurer to use an internal model to determine regulatory capital requirements for its insurance risk, the insurer would have some flexibility to design its internal model to better measure and manage associated risks. However, this flexibility introduces internal model risk. To minimize the internal model risk, OSFI expects insurers to develop and implement sound policies and practices for the oversight and control of risk associated with internal models. This draft guideline outlines the OSFI expectations for such internal model oversight and risk control.

    OSFI also published an impact analysis statement on the guideline for internal model oversight framework. An internal model, which is developed by an insurer and is used for determining the MCT regulatory capital requirements, captures the risks faced by an insurer more precisely than a non-customized standard approach. Insurer-specific elements of the model could include model inputs, model form, modeling technique, or choice of parameters. Insurers should satisfy the expectations of this guideline on an ongoing basis and demonstrate compliance on request.
