    Global insurance supervision and regulatory innovation
  discussed at forum

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 14, 2014) - Members of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) gathered global thought-leaders in the insurance sector to discuss regulatory issues and advance international regulatory coordination at the 7th annual International Insurance Forum in Washington, D.C.

"The business of insurance and reinsurance is both local and global, and the financial crisis reminded us how interconnected our world and financial markets have become," said Adam Hamm, NAIC President and North Dakota Insurance Commissioner. "We share a common commitment to ensure that insurance policyholders are able to secure protection, insurance companies are able to meet their financial obligations, and insurance markets are able to address the needs of our local communities."

The forum was moderated by Michael F. Consedine, NAIC Vice President and Commissioner of the Pennsylvania Insurance Department. "We are committed to positive engagement with international standard-setting bodies to advance regulatory innovation that supports strong markets in the U.S. and abroad," said Consedine, who chairs the International Insurance Relations Committee at the NAIC. "International best practices must reflect the unique aspects of each jurisdiction."

More than 250 regulators, insurers and stakeholders attended the two-day forum. Keynote speakers included remarks from Governor Dannel P. Malloy of Connecticut, Manuel Aguilera-Verduzco, President of the National Insurance and Sureties Commission of Mexico, and David Sampson, President and CEO of the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America. Panel topics included enhanced group supervision, supervisory colleges best practices, corporate governance, and capital standards.
