Results of the European insurance stress tests: Statement by Commissioner Barnier


Statement by Commissioner Barnier on today's announcement by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) of the results of the European insurance stress tests



"The results of the insurance stress tests announced today by EIOPA are important. The stress scenarios applied were severe and EIOPA's conclusion is that the insurance market in Europe covered by the stress test is robust.

Stress-tests conducted with regular intervals form an integral part of the new and more solid regulatory and supervisory framework that the EU has put in place with the establishment of the three new European Supervisory Authorities."
