Non-bank financial sector vulnerabilities surface as financial conditions tighten

As trends and shifts in the financial sector increases, NBFIs have emerged as key players in the financial sector.

It is vitally important to understand and screen this expanding financial sector that comprises a line-up of institutions beyond banks.

Non-bank financial intermediaries including investment funds, pension funds, insurers, money market funds and credit providers, also play a key role in the global financial system by providing financial services and credit and thus supporting economic growth.

The growth of the NBFI sector accelerated after the global financial crisis, accounting now for nearly 50 percent of global financial assets. As such, the smooth functioning of the non-bank sector is vital for financial stability.

The resilience of the non-bank financial sector and the supporting market infrastructure is crucial for the financial system to support the real economy and to absorb rather than amplify shocks.

Henceforth robust surveillance, regulation, and supervision are essential due to the tightening in policies, digital challenges and several other factors.

To assess the financial stability implications pension funds, insurance developments, academics and policy makers should improve their understanding of risks arising from the behaviour of non-bank financial institutions and the evolution of the supporting market infrastructure, and how to deal with those risks.

This conference will focus on bringing the key role players from NBFI’s – insurance companies, pension funds, investment intermediaries, microloan organisations together at one forum to discuss and learn how they can tackle the challenges and opportunities they face on meeting regulatory and reporting requirements.

Topics will be discussed under the following sections: regulatory risk and compliance challenges, financial inclusion, market conduct and consumer education, alternative finance market, ecosystem banking and innovation & technology.
