    Bank of England gives insurers wiggle room on capital rule

    The Bank of England (BoE) has given insurers more wiggle room in how they value assets on their books in volatile markets, a step the industry said could lead to savings on capital. The BoE's Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) said it would make it easier for insurers to use the "dynamic volatility adjustment" tool that is part of the European Union's capital requirements for the sector. The dynamic "VA" tool aims to dampen the impact of short-term market swings on the price of assets held for the long term, which in turn would affect the amount of capital held to cover risks associated with those assets.

    New rules to stop commercial property fire sales may be too little - Bank of England

    New rules proposed by a British regulator to avoid fire sales of commercial real estate by open-ended investment funds may not be enough if the sector increases in size, the Bank of England said on Wednesday. Commercial real estate was the financial sector most hit by turbulence after June 2016's Brexit vote, as open-ended funds allow investors to withdraw money at short notice, but their assets such as office blocks are hard to sell in a hurry. In 2016, several funds had to block investors' ability to withdraw funds, and the Bank of England said their structure risked creating a domino-effect of property sales.

    Banks, insurers must have credible plans for climate change - BoE

    Britain's banks and insurers must come up with credible plans for protecting themselves against risks from climate change and may need to hold more capital, the Bank of England said on Monday. "Financial risks from climate change will be minimised if there is an orderly market transition to a low-carbon world, but the window for an orderly transition is finite and closing," the central bank said in a policy proposal document. Governor Mark Carney, who has put climate change issues on the BoE’s regulatory radar, said last month that lenders had failed to grasp the scale of the challenge.
