  • The Principle of Proportionality in Insurance Supervision
    28. January 2020
    18:30 - 20:00

Summary

FINMA pursues a principle and risk-based approach in supervising insurance undertakings. The higher the risk potential of an insurance undertaking, the more intensive the supervision. When applying the principle of proportionality, FINMA does take into account the nature, scale and complexity of the insurance undertaking in question and does scale the provisions of governance and qualitative risk management.

In the light of principle-based supervision, it might be difficult for some small and medium-sized insurance undertakings to recognise the proportionality and risk-orientation in insurance supervision and to address the provisions appropriately. In this presentation, FINMA explains how it differentiates the supervision of governance and qualitative risk management matters based on the nature, scale and complexity of insurance undertakings and what implications this may have for small and medium-sized insurance undertakings.
