USA - Rules for too big to fail insurance firms
Saturday, 05 21 2016, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: United States
The Federal Reserve will soon take up rules for insurance companies deemed "too big to fail" intended to head off risks to U.S. financial stability, Fed Governor Daniel Tarullo said on Friday.
It will also in coming weeks propose requirements on how much capital that firms across the industry should hold, he said in a speech to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
The industry has waited for more than five years to see the proposals, which are tied to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law passed in 2010 after the financial crisis.
