Like other financial services businesses, many insurance companies are feeling weighted down by new and impending regulations. So say the more than 300 respondents to a survey conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and sponsored by State Street. The EIU polled senior insurance executives from around the world about the state of the insurance market.

Insurers are concerned about compliance with a wide range of regulations. Key among them are the EU’s Solvency II directive, which is a concern for 91 percent of companies operating in Europe, and the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which is a concern for 88 percent of them. Among insurance companies with operations in North America, 91 percent are worried about the increased regulatory oversight that might result from being designated a “systemically important financial institution,” 85 percent are concerned about the shifting standards of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and 81 percent worry about the potential for new oversight from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
