In Memory of Dr. Knut Georg Hohlfeld

Wednesday, February 21, 2019
It is with great regret and sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr. Knut Georg Hohlfeld (81) on 21 January 2019, after a long and illustrious tenure in the global supervisory community

Dr. Hohlfeld was the former head of the insurance supervisory authority of Germany (a predecessor of BaFin), and the Secretary General of the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), an important international standard-setting organization he helped establish in 1994.

Dr. Hohlfeld was also a member of Toronto Centre’s Insurance Advisory Board from its inception in 2001 until 2007. He is regarded fondly, with respect and as a former estimable colleague by members of the Toronto Centre family including the current and past Chairs - of the organization - and the Insurance and Pensions Advisory Board.

Toronto Centre remembers Dr. Hohlfeld as a strong advocate of capacity building and continuing education for insurance supervisors worldwide, which is key to the mission of the Toronto Centre.

We extend our deep condolences to Mr. Hohlfeld’s family and the IAIS community.
