Capital Markets


The principal risk of capital markets activities within regulated entities is the potential for loss on investment instruments and investment portfolios that may materially affect capital adequacy.

  • Managing this risk is the responsibility of the insurer's board of directors and management.
  • A key to the regulation of capital markets activities is assessing what capital markets risks the insurer has and how it measures and manages these risks. (p151)
