Dialogue Highlights and Identified Research Questions

This session is a continuation of the initial industry and regulator dialogue held during the NAIC’s 2022 summer national meeting.  The panel discussion will focus on the identification of communities at need facing significant social infrastructure investment gaps, followed by an in-depth conversation on bridging to investment capital working through the existing community development finance system on the ground in these at need communities.  At the CIPR event held in Portland, we began a social infrastructure investment dialogue between industry and regulators, highlighting industry’s current appetite and approach to social infrastructure investments, as well as presenting on how insurance regulators are currently thinking through these types of social infrastructure investments from a solvency perspective.

About the National Association of Insurance Commissioners

As part of our state-based system of insurance regulation in the United States, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) provides expertise, data, and analysis for insurance commissioners to effectively regulate the industry and protect consumers. The U.S. standard-setting organization is governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. Through the NAIC, state insurance regulators establish standards and best practices, conduct peer reviews, and coordinate regulatory oversight. NAIC staff supports these efforts and represents the collective views of state regulators domestically and internationally.
