This paper has been prepared for the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) to explore the elements needed for an international capital standard for insurers and to provide a “best practices” approach available to all supervisors. It deals with methods the supervisor might use to assess the current financial position as well as to understand the range of possible future financial positions of insurers. Its primary focus is on capital requirements for insurers.
