Under the NAIC’s Reinsurance Regulatory Modernization Framework, reinsurers in certified jurisdictions may conduct cross-border trades under an expedited approval process and lower collateral requirements. According to ABIR President Brad Kading, Bermuda is one of eight jurisdictions certified. He says the certification is important for reputational reasons and is demonstration of regulatory cooperation between U.S. insurance departments and the Bermuda Monitory Authority (BMA).
