Regulation and Reform of Rating Agencies in the European Union: An Insurance Industry Perspective
This article investigates the current discussion on the regulatory framework for credit rating agencies (CRAs) from the perspective of the insurance industry, focusing on the European Union. It becomes apparent that the new European system of regulation and supervision of CRAs conforms well to general principles of economic theory and can be expected to resolve many issues of concern. In contrast, some of the additional policy options currently discussed in Europe could involve substantial costs and risks for market participants and the financial system without contributing further to the objectives of CRA reform.
