Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is widely recognized that since the 2008–2009 financial crisis there exist essential flaws in the supervisory system and that further regulatory measures must put in place in the financial sector. Many proposals under consideration, or already embraced by regulatory authorities, focus on the “systemically important financial institutions” or banks “too big/connected to fail”. However, insurers and banks played 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 the reinsurance perspective. It is also important to examine how insurance business models, such as capital insurance, provide an alternative approach to systemic risk.

You are cordially invited to submit your research or proposal to the Topical Collection “Systemic Risk and Reinsurance” in the academic journal Risks. We welcome all high-quality papers related to systemic risk and reinsurance, in particular on the following topics:

• theoretical or empirical analysis of insurance and financial stability
• regulatory capital for the insurance sector
• forward-looking capital regulation
• capital insurance
• comparison between tax and insurance for systemic risk
• the “too connected to fail” issue
