NAMIC Issue | Financial Stability Oversight Council

Financial Stability Oversight Council [F]

Our Position

NAMIC OPPOSES designating property/casualty insurance companies as a Systemically Important Financial Institution (SIFI). Property/casualty insurance companies are adequately regulated at the state level for solvency and engage in conservative investment practices that ensure they are able to meet their responsibilities to their policyholders.
