The NAIC/Center for Insurance Policy and Research (CIPR) mission is to serve federal and state lawmakers, federal and state regulatory agencies, international regulatory agencies, and insurance consumers, by enhancing intergovernmental cooperation and awareness, improving consumer protection and promoting legitimate marketplace competition. To help achieve this mission, the CIPR hosts events at each NAIC National Meeting as well as webinars that bring together a number of dynamic and informative speakers and panelists.

The CIPR is partnering with the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) on this educational webinar. The purpose of this two-part webinar will be to review the history and role of rating agencies in insurance regulation. It will include presentations by several rating agencies that provide insurer financial strength ratings. It will also discuss the NAIC Securities Valuation Office (SVO) designation process and how it’s an integral part of the U.S. insurance regulatory system. The aim of each CIPR webinar is to present a variety of opinions to inform the public policy debate.

Registration is now open!

Registration for each webinar is complimentary, but advanced registration is required.

Group Registration: If you are participating as part of a group, please note this when registering. To be eligible for continuing education credits, each person participating in the group must be individually enrolled with the NAIC prior to the start of the webinar. Each group must designate a Group Coordinator who will log in to the webinar and be responsible for verifying attendance for all members of the group. The meeting invitation with log-in information will only be sent to the Group Coordinator.

Part 1

Friday, October 14th, 2016 from 11:00 am – 12:15 pm ET

This webinar will include presentations by several rating agencies that provide insurer financial strength ratings. Each rating agency will provide an overview of their rating process and methodology. Following the presentations will be a panel discussion with all of the presenters on topics such as: how insurance company ratings can differ among agencies and how ratings are used in the insurance marketplace.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify rating agencies discussed during the presentation and provide a basic overview of their rating processes and methodologies.
  • Understand how ratings agencies assess the financial strength of an insurance company and why ratings of the same insurance company can differ.
  • Describe how ratings are used in the insurance marketplace.

 

Part 2

Thursday, October 20th, 2016 from 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm ET

This webinar will feature presentations on the NAIC Securities Valuation Office (SVO) and Structured Securities Group (SSG). A panel discussion will follow addressing questions such as: how the NAIC uses rating agency information; how the NAIC uses ratings for Filing Exempt (FE) securities; and how the SVO and SSG’s analytical work differs from what rating agencies do.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the roles and responsibilities of the SVO and SSG.
  • Explain how the NAIC uses credit ratings and describe how the SVO and SSG analytical work differs from rating agencies.
  • Understand state insurance regulators' reconsideration of their use of credit ratings in response to the financial crisis.
  • Provide a basic overview of the Dodd-Frank Act's call to end regulatory reliance on credit ratings.
