From Brussels with love: A perspective on developing insurance regulation at the EU level

Karel Van Hulle provides some personal reflections on the issues facing the post-financial crisis insurance market, and the responses with the European financial regulatory architecture. He also summarises some principles underpinning insurance regulation at the EU level.

The author also discusses the recent progress of some of the specific briefs on the EU insurance regulatory agenda: Solvency II; Review of the Directive on Institutions for Occupational Retirement Provision; the Insurance Mediation Directive review and Packaged Retail Investment Products.
