Regulatory & Compliance

The insurance industry has been going through unprecedented regulatory changes in the recent years, and the regulatory agenda remains robust for the foreseeable future, with over 90% of Insurance CEOs worldwide seeing over-regulation as the main threat to future growth.

Increased compliance costs are today's reality for insurers and reinsurers, and those that will thrive to leverage now upon these changes to rethink their organisation, transform their operations and review their strategy will be tomorrow's front runners.

Embedding the compliance function in the future into the strategic thinking is more than ever key to gain the critical edge and competitive advantage.

GDPR

One of the new ambitions that the GDPR promotes is to give natural persons residing in the EU, the "data subjects", an increased level of control over their information. It also aims to improve the environment by ensuring that data controllers and processors are safe custodians of data through promoting behavioural change. The GDPR provides for enhanced supervision by increasing the powers of the regulator as champion of the data.
