PCI Releases Report On U.S. Insurance Group Supervision

Targeted News Service

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18 -- The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America issued the following news release:

The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) today released a white paper entitled, "Effective and Efficient Insurance Group Supervision in the U.S.: What More, if Anything is Needed?" The document outlines PCI's group supervision principles and group supervision implementation recommendations.

This white paper is a product of PCI's broader efforts to have a positive influence on global regulatory convergence issues. It outlines PCI's principles and recommendations that should be taken into account by policymakers in any discussions relating to changing U.S. insurance group supervision. This paper will help will assure that the U.S. insurance regulatory system is not undermined and that any group supervision changes promote efficiency and do not simply impose an additional layer of regulation that ultimately harms consumers and the large economy.

"Group supervision issues arise out of many international work streams, including IAIS ComFrame and US-EU Dialogue," said Robert Gordon, PCI's senior vice president policy research and development. "The fact is that current US insurance regulation functions quite well and in our view, adequately accounts for necessary supervision of groups. This is borne out by the excellence performance of the industry despite the financial crisis, natural catastrophes, and years of recession."

A full copy of the report is attached below.
