April 9, 2015

Insurance Journal - Mark Hollmer

The federal government has the backs of insurers and their clients as they seek to protect themselves from, and adapt to, the fast-evolving threat of cyber attacks, Federal Insurance Office Director Michael McRaith assured an industry crowd last month.

"We want to support the insurance industry as it seeks to protect itself from cyber incidents," McRaith said during the Networks Financial Institute 11th Annual Public Policy Summit in Washington, D.C. "Cyber protection should be as strong as it is for any other financial institution."

March 24, 2015

Willis Review

Leading federal insurance experts in the United States have reiterated their support for international capital standards (ICS) for globally active insurers despite industry concerns that international regulators are moving too quickly with the plans.

Best’s News Service quoted Federal Insurance Office Director Michael McRaith and Federal Reserve Board senior insurance advisor Tom Sullivan as saying international capital standards were needed to stave off regulatory arbitrage and ensure insurers are competing on a global playing field. "The first objective is to complete some version of the ICS by 2016," said Mr. McRaith during the Financial Institute’s annual Insurance Public Policy Summit.

A.M. Best Doubts Quick Timeline for International Capital Standards

March 23, 2015

Carrier Management

A. M. Best has expressed some doubt that a tight timeline to finalize and launch insurance industry international capital standards can actually be met. That’s due, in part, to a "scarcity of common ground."

The International Association of Insurance Supervisors, a Swiss-based group of regulators from nearly 140 countries, plans to finalize international minimum capital standards by December 2016. IAIS officials also hope to win membership adoption of those standards by the end of 2018. But A.M. Best sees those deadlines as questionable.

Speaking at an event in Washington D.C. on March 17, Federal Insurance Office Director Michael McRaith said that insurers could see some version of an international capital standard by 2016. He added, however, that the change would be incremental rather than industry changing.

Global Capital Standards Will be Slow in Coming: FIO’s McRaith

March 22, 2015

Carrier Management - Mark Hollmer

Insurers could see some version of an international capital standard by 2016, Federal Insurance Office Director Michael McRaith told a recent gathering of industry professionals in Washington, D.C.

"The first objective of 2016 is to complete some … primitive version of the international capital standard, [but the] expectation is that it will not be a final magical formula," McRaith said during the Networks Financial Institute 11th Annual Insurance Public Policy Summit on March 17.
