This consultation call focused on climate risk insurance. Practical examples of climate risk insurance at different levels (macro and micro) were given and the role of the insurance supervisor discussed.

"Supervisory Responses to Fraud" – IAIS-A2ii Consultation Call, 19 July 2018

Insurance fraud is a phenomenon that every supervisory authority comes into contact with sooner or later, and if left unchecked it can seriously harm the health of the insurance market. On this consultation call, we had a number of supervisors who shared their approach to dealing with fraud: they spoke about the current state of fraud in their market, how they monitor it, and what kind of measures they have taken to address it.

A2ii-IAIS Consultation Call on Innovation Hubs and Accelerators, 22 March 2018

When stimulating innovation, there are limits to what a supervisory authority can achieve alone. Inter-institutional cooperation is a powerful tool for responding to new market trends and for creating a safe space for the launch of new initiatives. This call took a closer look at what those cooperation platforms look like. Case studies were used to explore what the role of the insurance supervisor looks like within them, and pulled together a number of aspects that supervisors might need to consider when pioneering such an approach.

21st A2ii-IAIS Consultation Call on "Measuring insurance development: beyond the insurance penetration rate", 23 March 2017

The insurance penetration rate is traditionally calculated based on total premiums as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This has served as a useful high-level measure of insurance development, while providing a good basis for international comparison. However, supervisors pursuing more specific policy goals, such as financial inclusion or client value, may find that this measure on its own does not provide enough meaningful information to guide policy strategies.
