Life and non-life insurance
The Life and Non-life Insurance Division of the Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) is part of the Department of Insurance Supervision, which has overall responsibility for prudential supervision of the insurance sector. The objective of supervision is to ensure that the entities have the financial means to fulfil their obligations, such as payment of insurance claims and pensions.
We supervise life and non-life insurance companies’ internal governance and risk management procedures. We assess underwriting risks, such as the calculation and adequacy of technical provisions, as well as investment risks.
In addition, we supervise the accuracy of financial statement data of supervised entities in the insurance sector in terms of profitability and solvency. We participate in international cooperation, including within colleges of supervisors, in our own field of competence.
