The program focuses on two main concerns that are in the top of mind of the leaders of insurance and pensions regulatory and supervisory agencies: how should financial regulators and supervisors contribute to tackling climate change related risks; and second, how to maximize the benefits of Fintech and exert and effective oversight over an industry that is being transformed by technological innovation. The way in which regulators and supervisors address these pressing issues will impact the stability, inclusiveness, integrity, and efficiency of their markets.
Participants in this program will better understand the risks that climate change poses to the stability of insurance and pensions markets, discuss what their roles should be, and explore how new developments coming from the regulatory, product development and technological fronts are changing how the industry and the insurance and pensions supervisors assess and mitigate climate-related risks. Participants will discuss how to take a proportional approach to Fintech developments – often referred to as Insurtech and Pensiontech for the insurance and pensions sectors – and analyze how to deal with the emergence of innovative products, distribution models and new players while leveraging existing Regtech and Suptech solutions to gain access to more granular and real-time data that enrich the supervisor's judgment and decision-making process.
The program combines joint cross-sectoral sessions with sector-specific breakout case studies, in recognition of the specific needs and interests of insurance and pensions supervisors.
The program is designed for mid- to senior-level staff and managers involved in regulatory and supervisory activities at insurance and pensions supervisory authorities. Participants should have at least three years of working experience in financial sector supervision, analysis, or policy, and be proficient in English.
