Share LocalNews PM Skerrit clears the air about new insurance act by: – March 9, 2012 Tweet Sharing is caring! Share Share 10 Views no discussions Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has responded to claims by the United Workers Party that there was not enough public consultation on the recently passed insurance bill in parliament as inaccurate. Leader of the United Workers Party Edison James issued a statement last week, asking government to delay the submission of the new insurance bill to the president for assent.Photo credit: mcwaldenbailey.comHowever the prime minister in a statement this week said consultation on the bill commenced since 2005. He explained that the CLICO and BICO debacle brought into sharp focus, the urgent need for the enactment of more up to date legislation to strengthen the regulation and supervision of the insurance industry in the entire ECCU.According to the prime minister, the additional provisions are meant to protect the public against financial loss arising out of malpractice, incompetence or dishonesty of persons engaged in carrying on insurance business in Dominica.“The value of an asset in an insurance company must exceed its liabilities by at least two million dollars for local company, five million for a foreign company or 10% of its policy long term insurance liabilities or 20% of its premium income in its last preceding financial year for general insurance business, whichever is the greater,” he added.The requirements for insurance companies to significantly increase their minimum insured share capital and statutory deposits and for the establishment of insurance trust funds to cover policy holder liabilities are all aimed at having sound insurance companies operating in Dominica.Additionally, the prime minister indicated that clear perimeters have been laid out for establishing insurance funds to cover policy holder liabilities.He said an insurance fund shall only be invested in prescribed assets and they are to be placed in a trust created by trust deed and administered by a trust company or license financial institution, approved by the registrar.“With these provisions, resources will be more readily available to meet the need of a policy holder, should an insurance company experience financial difficulties. The Act gives the registrar the power to intervene at anytime, in the affairs of the registered insurance company to protect policy holders against the risk of inability to meet obligations to policy holders,” he explained.The Act, he continued, also empowers the registrar to apply to the court for an insurance company to be placed under the judicial management where the registrar is of the opinion that it is necessary or proper to do so.Dominica Vibes News
