The NAIC Solvency Modernization Initiative (SMI) is an effort to assess and revise the US insurance solvency regulatory framework. SMI is focused on five key areas: capital requirements, governance and risk management, group supervision, statutory accounting and financial reporting, and reinsurance. Separately, the Dodd–Frank Act mandates changes to the regulation of surplus lines in the United States.

Please join Lawrence Hamilton and Vikram Sidhu as they discuss the latest SMI developments as well as changes to the regulation of surplus lines. The topics to be covered in the call include:

  • Overview of NAIC Solvency Modernization Initiative
  • Changes to NAIC Insurance Holding Company Model Law and Regulation
  • Development of the Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (“ORSA”)
  • Development of Best Practices for Group Supervision
  • Impact of Dodd-Frank on Surplus Lines
