The 2007-8 financial crisis brought significant changes to the regulation of life and property and casualty insurance, with unprecedented intervention by the federal government and the emergence of global insurance standards. Congress created a new Federal Insurance Office at the Treasury Department, while the Financial Stability Oversight Council has designated several insurance companies for regulation by the Federal Reserve. A new presidential administration and new Congress is an opportunity to reassess such changes, and whether others should be made.

Join us on April 19 for the release of BPC’s new report on how to improve insurance regulation at the state, national, and global levels and better serve the interests of policyholders and the economy. The report will include a series of recommendations on how to strengthen state insurance regulation, what is the proper federal role in insurance regulation, issues of global coordination, and more.
