It has been widely recognized that, after the 2008-2009 financial crisis, there exists essential flaws in the supervisory system and further regulation effort on the financial sector must be on placed. Many proposals under considerations or embraced by regulatory are focus on those “systemically important financial institutions”, or “too big/connected to fail” banks. However, insurers and banks played significantly markedly different roles in the financial crisis. Therefore, it is important to study the systemic risk for the insurer and the nature of systemic risk from reinsurance perspective. It is also important to examine how insurance business model such as capital insurance provides an alternative approach to the systemic risk.
