Analytical tools for the insurance market and macro-prudential surveillance
W. Jean Kwon, Leigh Wolfrom

This article provides an overview of the analytical tools used by insurance regulators and supervisors for the purposes of market and macro-prudential surveillance. It is largely based on responses from 24 OECD and non-OECD countries to a questionnaire on the use and relative importance of a set of common indicators and analytical tools that provide information on the soundness, performance and competitiveness of the insurance market. The article therefore provides a point of reference on the use of analytical tools for market surveillance and is intended to inform the further development of the OECD Global Insurance Statistics framework.

Estimating the size and incidence of bank resolution costs for selected banks in OECD countries
Marianna Blix Grimaldi, Jörg Hofmeister, Sebastian Schich, Daniel Snethlage

This report provides estimates of the costs associated with bank resolution both in terms of the expected costs that might arise should a bank fail (i.e. as “ex-post” costs), as well as the cost associated with the likelihood that a solvent bank might fail (i.e. as “ex-ante” costs) over the next year. It finds that expected resolution costs (ex-post costs) have dropped recently due to higher average capital ratios and a lower level of bank liabilities as a percentage of GDP. The annualised value of these expected resolution costs (ex-ante costs), which increased sharply after 2008, has since subsided, but remains well above its 2008 level. Overall, the estimates produced in this report support the notion that recent financial sector reforms have had an impact on reducing the costs associated with bank failure, including the expected costs to taxpayers. However, estimates are in most cases yet to return to pre-crisis levels.
