Are life cos ready for looming IoM Conduct of Business Code?
By Tom Carnegie, 8 Mar 18
It is now less than a year until the Isle of Man Conduct of Business Code comes into force, International Adviser spoke to several firms headquartered on the island to see how they are preparing for the introduction of the regulation.
When introduced on 1 January 2019, the code will require insurers headquartered on the island to provide clients with bespoke information about commission and fees.
A consultation paper released by the Isle of Man Financial Service Authority says the code will include a mandatory key information document standard that insurers will be obligated to roll out – worldwide.
This requirement will mean insurers on the Isle of Man and their branches around the world will be required to provide detailed, bespoke information to clients about exactly how much commission they pay for insurance products.
