This guidance should assist authorities in meeting the resolution planning requirement under the Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions (Key Attributes) and support Crisis Management Groups (CMGs) of global systemically important insurers (G-SIIs) in their resolution planning work. It sets out considerations for determining a preferred resolution strategy based on a strategic analysis of insurers’ business models, the criticality of insurers’ functions and policy holder protection arrangements. It also identifies a range of elements that need to be in place so that a resolution strategy can be credibly and feasibly be implemented, including effective cross-border cooperation, information systems and resources to absorb loss.
