The FSB, in consultation with the IAIS and national authorities, has identified in 2016 nine insurers as G-SIIs as part of its annual identification process of global SIFIs. The 2016 G-SII list is based on a recommendation made by the IAIS using end-2015 data. The insurers on the 2016 G-SII list remain the same as those on the 2015 list.
