The Prudential Authority has called for input by 31 July 2024 on two sets of proposals affecting liquidity risk management in the insurance industry:

  • a draft standard, and
  • a guidance notice.

An accompanying statement of need outlines the expected impact and intended operation of the framework envisaged.

According to a communication on the two documents, the draft standard sets out practices and guidelines for complying with:

  • risk management-related internal controls, and
  • own risk solvency assessment obligations.

The guidance notice unpacks them, bearing in mind that:

  • it ‘aims to illustrate approaches that should be considered in identifying, measuring and managing an insurer's liquidity risk’
  • ‘some elements … may not be relevant to all insurers in terms of the application of practices or guidelines’
  • other elements ‘may need to be varied based on an insurer’s circumstances and characteristics’, and that
  • once finalised the standard will replace the existing prudential standard FSI 6.
