    Bad weather in RSA's (RSA.L) key markets are likely to hit first-half profits, the British insurer's chief financial officer said on Thursday, as the firm reported a 2 percent rise in net written premiums in the three months to end-March.

Storm Emma, which hit Britain and Ireland in March, will cost RSA 40 million pounds ($54.23 million) on a pre-tax basis, Scott Egan told a media call.

    British insurers demand Bank of England action not words on capital rule

    British insurers called on the Bank of England on Thursday to ease a 50 billion pound capital charge which they blame for pushing business overseas. Although Deputy Governor Sam Woods has signalled a willingness to soften the so-called risk margin for months, the Bank of England has yet to deliver any change to the capital charge to cover what a third party would need to take over an insurer's policies if it went bust. In an unusually blunt statement to its regulator, the Association of British Insurers (ABI) said it was time for the BoE to act to address what a risk to financial stability.

    EU's Barnier warns time running out for Brexit deal

    EU negotiator Michel Barnier accused the British government on Tuesday of clinging to "illusion" while time runs out for a Brexit deal to avoid massive disruption when Britain leaves the European Union next year. Speaking after briefing ministers from the other 27 EU states and ahead of publication on Wednesday of a first draft of a withdrawal treaty that officials say will cross many British red lines, Barnier returned to a familiar mantra that had become muted after an interim deal with London two months ago. With British politics still in turmoil over Brexit, a mammoth project rejected by nearly half the country in a 2016 referendum, there has been a sharpening of tone on both sides.

    Bank of England will not 'go soft' on EU insurance rules

    The Bank of England will not "go soft" on enforcing European Union capital rules for insurers, but will look at ways to make it easier for new entrants to boost competition in the industry, its deputy governor Sam Woods said on Tuesday. The Bank's Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), which Woods also heads, is consulting on how to ease the burden of the EU's Solvency II rules, which insurers say are overly burdensome. "We can tell the difference between feedback about a genuine technical flaw and generalised lobbying for lighter-touch regulation," Woods told the annual conference of the Association of British Insurers (ABI).

    UK fourth-quarter motor insurance premiums fall 1.3 percent - survey

    The cost of a comprehensive motor insurance policy fell 1.3 percent on average in Britain in the fourth quarter from the previous quarter, though premiums rose 8 percent for full-year 2017, a survey said on Monday. Premiums have fallen for the past two quarters after Britain said it planned to change the way personal injury lump sum payments are calculated, a move which would cut the size of those payments. Motor insurers took a hit to profits and insurance premiums rose earlier this year after Britain made an unexpectedly large change to the existing discount rate.

    BoE flags it may unilaterally ease EU insurance rule

    Britain might ease a European Union rule blamed by insurers for jacking up capital requirements, the Bank of England said on Tuesday. British lawmakers want the BoE to "urgently" amend the risk margin in EU insurance capital rules known as Solvency II. This refers to a capital add-on to cover what a third party would need to safeguard policies if an insurer goes bust. "In our view the calculation in Solvency II is wrong," Bank of England Deputy Governor Sam Woods told parliament's Treasury Select Committee.

    Bank of England to ease burden of EU insurance rules

    The Bank of England has proposed easing the burden of European Union capital rules for insurers, but the industry urged the regulator to go further and meet calls from British lawmakers for more radical change. The BoE's Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), which supervises banks and insurers, published a consultation paper to lighten some reporting requirements under the bloc's Solvency II rules. The PRA said the proposed changes take into account recommendations for reform made by the Association of British Insurers (ABI), and by parliament's Treasury Select Committee.
