MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN AND PRESIDENT & CEOThe global insurance industry faced numerous challenges in 2011, seeking to maintain its financial strength duringthe global financial slowdown while addressing policymakers' desire for a wave of new regulation. While there were afew bright spots in terms of growth, notably in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, the industry's historic marketdrivers North America and Western Europe remained mired in a serious economic slowdown. Nonetheless regulatorsand politicians pressed for more stringent solvency standards and financial reporting requirements, promising to addcosts and complexity to the industry.We would be remiss if we did not extend our deepest gratitude to our members for their active participation. Their inputand efforts enable us to better serve them and the industry. Special thanks to our board members, whose wise counseland support, make our contributions to the industry possible.Insurers welcome the notion of better regulation of solvency, market conduct and other issues. They are concerned,however, that more regulation has not always proven to be better regulation. After all, insurance companies demonstratedduring the financial crisis that compared to banks, their source of funding – premiums versus commercial paper anddeposits – and their asset quality – highly rated, liquid securities versus loans and other illiquid assets – has shownto be superior. A run on insurers' funding base simply can't happen. Insurers' balance sheets are structurally superior.The industry is therefore justifiably worried that policymakers' tendency to lump banks and insurers together mightresult in punitive and unfair treatment.As the global insurance industry continues to navigate these treacherous waters, the IIS maintains its commitment toenhance the cross border exchange of ideas and strategies to meet its members' needs and those of the industry as awhole. Inclusive by design, the IIS serves as the only forum for the key stakeholders of the industry – insurers, regulatorsand scholars, represented by the three strands of rope that are bound together on our cover – to collaborativelyembark on identifying solutions for the benefit of the global industry and by extension, society as a whole. Diversity inour membership is our founding principle; it is inclusivity that has fortified the IIS and fosters an industry that advancesthrough the strength of global connection.Norman R.
