BPC Forum to Explore Key Issues in Global Insurance Regulation

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Washington, D.C. – Is there global coordination—or chaos—when it comes to regulating insurance companies?

Insurance is increasingly a globally integrated business. However, regulation remains fragmented at the state, national and international levels. The result is an often perplexing array of rules, with policymakers within the United States and Europe coming to very different conclusions on a range of issues—from where to set capital standards to how to resolve insurance companies to whether reinsurance companies should be designated as systemically important firms.

Join BPC’s Insurance Regulatory Reform Task Force on Tuesday, May 19 to hear two of the leading insurance experts from both sides of the Atlantic discuss what is driving many of these differences—and whether we can find enough common ground to resolve them. Come join us for this first of several public BPC discussions on what we can do to improve insurance regulation in a post Dodd-Frank world.
