    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.

    Motor insurance drives rise in premiums at UK's esure

    British insurer esure Group Plc said on Wednesday it expected 20-25 percent growth in full-year premiums as it reported a record quarter for premiums, helped by rising demand and legal changes that raised the cost of motor insurance. The company, which provides insurance products to drivers, home owners, pet owners and holiday makers across Britain, said gross written premiums rose 25.4 percent to 625.8 million pounds ($823.1 million) in the nine months ended Sept. 30. The insurer also said it expected its full-year combined operating ratio to be at the lower end of its 96-98 percent range, which translates into a higher underwriting profit.

    UK insurers face bigger compensation pot contribution

    LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 30 (Reuters) - Britain's markets watchdog flagged a shift on Monday towards a "polluter pays" model of compensation by forcing insurers to pay more into a pot for consumers out of pocket.

    British insurer RSA is planning a subsidiary in Luxembourg to act as the headquarters of its European Union operations following Britain's decision to leave the bloc, the firm said on Monday.
