The insurance market offers private individuals and businesses the possibility to manage their risks and secure their future financial well-being. FI’s assignment is to ensure that the firms are stable and protect consumers’ assets. We do this in part by establishing requirements on how companies should distribute any surpluses. It is also important for consumers to receive clear information about the products and accompanying fees, for example, that are proposed for various pension arrangement or when transferring insurance policies.
