Swiss Re / CSFI Fellowship in Global Insurance

(2013 - 2014)



Paul Wright's career has spanned the Bank of England, the FSA and the Institute of International Finance, providing him with decades of experience addressing issues of financial regulation.


Swiss Re


Swiss Re is the world's second largest reinsurance company.




The main themes explored in the round-tables, dinner discussions and the final report were:

  • the ‘conventional’ view of insurance;
  • the benefits of insurance;
  • the economic and social environment;
  • ‘conventional’ insurance regulation; and
  • insurance and financial stability.


New directions for insurance:

International regulators risk losing a sense of perspective by extending to the insurance industry, in blanket fashion, post-crisis measures designed to deal with financial instability. Click the report cover to download a PDF copy.
