Nine of the world's largest insurers have until Oct. 15 to respond to an extended version of guidance issued by the Financial Stability Board that applies to non-bank financial institutions, Bloomberg reported. The guidance will apply to nine insurers identified in July by the FSB that include Allianz SE, MetLife Inc., Prudential Financial Inc., American International Group Inc. (AIG) and Aviva PLC. The Swiss-based board, led by Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, is coordinating the global regulatory response to prevent a repeat of the financial crisis that followed the collapse of Lehman Bros. Holdings Inc. and the bailout of AIG.  The board "set out the core elements considered necessary to make feasible the resolution of financial institutions without severe systemic disruption and without exposing taxpayers to losses," it said Monday.
