4 International Regulatory Agenda
One key objective: to develop a harmonized, globally consistent regulatory framework for internationally active insurance groups Two key players: Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the IAIS Three main projects: Basic Capital Requirement (BCR) ComFrame (Common Framework for the Supervision of IAIGs) Global Insurance Capital Standard (ICS)

6 Global Systemically Important Insurers(G-SIIs)Policy Measures Overview
Introduction On July 18, 2013, IAIS announced that it had developed a framework of policy measures for; however, the proposed HLA measures will be subject to further consultation before they are finalized in 2015 in advance of the proposed implementation date of 2019. Enhanced Supervision Recovery and Resolution Higher Loss Absorbency Components Implementation Timeline Time Action July 2013 Designation of the first G-SII cohort July 2014 Crisis Management Groups (CMG) to be established for the first G-SII cohort Systemic Risk Management Plan (SRMP) to be completed End 2015 IAIS to develop implementation details for HLA that will apply to designated G-SIIs starting from 2019 November 2017 The FSB to designate the cohort of G-SIIs, based on the IAIS methodology and 2016 data, for which the HLA policy measure will apply, with implementation beginning in 2019 January 2019 G-SIIs designated in November 2017 to apply the HLA requirements

7 Basic Capital Requirements(BCR) and Higher Loss Absorbency(HLA)
As a foundation for HLA requirements for G-SIIs, the IAIS will develop straightforward, basic capital requirements to apply to all group activities, including non-insurance subsidiaries. The BCR is intended to balance between simplicity and risk sensitivity, as well as provide a more comparable foundation for the HLA than local capital requirements. Based on the foundation of the BCR, the higher loss absorbency requirements will focus on systemic risks and non-traditional non-insurance (NTNI) activities as the second step towards the ICS. The HLA will be completed in 2015 and implemented to G-SIIs from 2019.

8 Common Framework for the Supervision of Internationally Active Insurance Groups (ComFrame)
Introduction ComFrame is a set of international supervisory requirements focusing on the effective group-wide supervision of IAIGs. ComFrame is built and expands upon the high level requirements and guidance currently set out in the IAIS ICPs, which generally apply on both a legal entity and group-wide level. ComFrame consists of the following three modules: Module one: The Scope of ComFrame Module two: The IAIG (including capital adequacy requirements) Module three: The Supervisor (including establishment of supervisory colleges) Three Modules of ComFrame Development 2010 to Dec 2013 Field Testing 2014 to end of 2018 Implementation starts in 2019 ComFrame Development Timeline

9 ICS Development Timeline
Global Insurance Capital Standards(ICS) Introduction On October 9, 2013, the IAIS announced that it is committed to develop a risk based ICS by the end of 2016, followed by a two-year period of testing and refinement with supervisors and IAIGs. The ICS is scheduled to be implemented beginning in 2019. After completion, the ICS will be included in ComFrame replacing the content of Module 2 Element 5 Capital Adequacy Assessment. The IAIS has committed to develop the ICS in the following three steps: The first step is to develop ICS by end 2016. The second step is to test and refine the framework by 2018. The third step is to implement it globally starting in 2019. Development Steps of the ICS Development Phase In three steps by the end of 2016 Testing and Refining To the third quarter of 2018 Implementation starts in 2019 ICS Development Timeline
