CIRC pledges to defuse risks

CHINA’S insurance regulator said yesterday that it will find and defuse hidden risks in the use of insurance funds, a fresh move to tighten supervision of the multitrillion-dollar sector.

Authorities will stop the illegal use of insurance funds, keep the leverage ratio under control and fill regulatory gaps, according to a statement from the China Insurance Regulatory Commission.

Inspections will be focused on major investment in stocks, equities, real estate, alternative and financial products as well as overseas investment.

The sector will be screened for compliance risks, regulatory arbitrage, asset-liability mismatches and other major risks.

Those who violate laws and regulations will receive the maximum punishment.

Chinese insurers grabbed headlines for using leveraged money to buy shares in listed companies, triggering sharp volatility in the market late last year.
