Derivatives Regulation under Dodd-Frank: Implications for Insurance Companies

We have previously commented on the potential impact of Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act on the derivative businesses of insurance companies and highlighted various uncertainties about such impact due to the fact that much of the Dodd-Frank Act remained to be implemented by rules. One year later, certain rules have been finalized but many of the rules implementing the Dodd-Frank Act have been proposed but have not been finalized, and it is unclear to what extent such rules will be adopted in the form currently proposed. Certain of such proposed rules clarify outcomes for insurance companies, while others heighten concerns and cause greater uncertainties. This summary discusses certain of the major potential effects of Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act on insurance companies in light of such finalized and current proposed rules.
