Covid-19 Insurance Supervisory Response Tracker

What are countries around the globe doing to mitigate the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on their insurance sectors?

We have created a new page: the Covid-19 Insurance Supervisory Response Tracker is a non-exhaustive list of references for preventive measures and actions released by jurisdictions.  

As well as news by topic and region, we include links to resources and webinars as learning and exchange opportunities for insurance supervisors.

We are including references to helpful resources for supervisors developed by our partners. Please let us know about any resources we may have missed, we would be happy to include them. Email secretariat@a2ii.org, tweet us @a2ii_org, or share with us on LinkedIn.


 

A2ii-IAIS Covid-19 webinar series: the pandemic and implications for supervisors

The A2ii has jumped into action to launch a series of supervisor-only webinars on the topic and provide more support and resources for supervisors.

Currently, the first webinars are scheduled on 2 April, 16 April, 30 April, 28 May, 18 June, and 30 June – check our events page for the most up-to-date information and to view slides from the webinars. Our blog posts on "A2ii insights" also summarise lessons derived from the webinars.

A2ii Blog Series on Covid-19

The newly launched A2ii blog, serves as a collection of thought leadership pieces, observations and analysis by the A2ii team and guest contributors.  The first series of posts is focused on COVID-19 and implications for insurance supervisors.
