On 24 February, the Finnish Parliament’s Commerce Committee outlined that when setting additional capital requirements based on systemic risks, the risks must be described in detail, their extent must be estimated, and the capital requirements must be derived from the risks in a transparent manner.</span><br></p></div>2

Despite initial concerns, insurers successfully guaranteed business continuity through their efforts. Evidence from consumer interviews also confirms that the processes of buying insurance products, upholding contracts and paying out compensations have also functioned. The shift towards digital channels has crystallised many of their benefits both for insurers and intermediaries as well as for consumers.</span><br></p></div>3

Speeding up sustainable finance requires slowing down new regulation

Elina Kamppi, 21 Dec 2020

The past year has been a year of speculation in sustainable finance. We have been looking for interpretations of how the EU Disclosures Regulation obligates the providers, producers and sellers of investment services and products in practice. Unfortunately, the search has not yielded much results, and until the ESAs bring more clarity to the matter in early 2021, we can only continue to speculate. Originally, the EU technical standards were to be finalised by the end of 2020. The regulation enters implementation in March.
