    IAIS Publishes Newsletter for October 2019

    November 01, 2019

    IAIS published the October issue of its newsletter. This issue highlighted that IAIS completed its first assessment under the new Peer Review Process. The first Peer Review Process focused on the mandate for supervisors and supervisory powers, which includes Insurance Core Principles, or ICPs, 1 (Objectives, Powers, and Responsibilities of the Supervisor) and 2 (Supervisor). The Expert Team will present its final report in November and the report will cover a synthesis of useful practices for standards where observance can present challenges.

    The IAIS Secretary General highlighted that much of the focus is on finalizing key aspects of post-crisis reforms; however, IAIS will continue to look to the horizon by expanding the efforts to respond proactively to the emerging trends that are fundamentally shifting the landscape of the insurance sector. This was evidenced in a recent collaboration between IAIS and the FSB Financial Innovation Network, at a workshop on "Data and innovation—Opportunities and risks for the insurance sector." The workshop addressed implications of new and big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning for policyholders and broader society; innovative business models in insurance; third-party outsourcing; and financial stability, regulatory, and supervisory issues. The newsletter also notes that the Fintech Forum met on October 21 to discuss developments in the use of artificial intelligence in the insurance sector and related supervisory issues. 

    Additional key developments during the month included the following:

    • The Executive Committee met on October 10 to agree on feedback to be provided to FSB on certain operational aspects of the holistic framework for systemic risk in the insurance sector. In addition, the Committee met on October 23-24 in London. Agenda items included a discussions on various documents related to the finalization of the holistic framework and on issues related to the development of the Insurance Capital Standard (ICS) Version 2.0 for the monitoring period.
    • The Macro-prudential Committee met on October 18 to discuss various documents related to the finalization of the holistic framework for systemic risk in the insurance sector. 
    • The Policy Development Committee met on October 21 to discuss issues related to development of ICS Version 2.0 for the monitoring period.
    • The Accounting and Auditing Working Group (AAWG) met on September 23-24 and finalized a comment letter to IASB on the Exposure Draft on amendments to IFRS 17 on insurance contracts. The AAWG continues to monitor adoption and implementation activities of IFRS 17.
