Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA

Annual Report 2014

Overview of insurance companies

Insurance supervision in 2014 was largely determined by persistently low interest rates and international developments. Despite low interest rates, most insurers were adequately solvent without having to rely on temporary SST relief measures. At the international level, FINMA contributed to developing the new IAIS standards, while at the national level it concentrated on reviewing technical provisions and associated processes of the insurers.
