Capital Markets

H. CAPITAL MARKETS BUREAU

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)
