I would also like to thank the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements, the International Federation of Insurance Supervisory Authorities, the Egmont Group, the Swiss Insurance Institute, central banks and financial intelligence units to combat money laundering and terrorist financing in the Arab countries.

Ladies and gentlemen in attendance,


Today’s meeting deals with the topic of “governance of insurance companies”, including the role of regulatory authorities and the internal and external auditor in enhancing governance, the conditions and standards that must be met in the formation of the insurance company’s board of directors and its committees, the adoption of limits of responsibility and accountability for all functional and administrative levels, and the role of compliance and risk departments And the role of the Board of Directors in reducing the risks that the company may be exposed to and in ensuring that the executive management addresses the weaknesses and observations contained in the internal and external audit reports, and sets key performance indicators and evaluation of institutional performance, in addition to adopting internal control and control systems.

It also deals with the topic of "risks that insurance companies may be exposed to as a result of financial crimes", including ways of exploitation of the insurance sector by perpetrators of financial crimes and the role of regulatory authorities in reducing them, best practices for controlling insurance companies and the adequacy of their anti-money laundering and terrorist financing systems The role of the Board of Directors in adopting a comprehensive policy to combat financial crimes, ways to reduce risks that may result from the use of modern financial technologies in the insurance sector, the challenges and legal, financial and reputational risks that the sector faces due to financial crimes, and ways and means for the continuous development of insurance companies’ procedures for the “know your customer” system. “, by paying attention to the process of investigating customer data and linking it to the relevant authorities in the field of combating financial crimes, in addition to the extent to which an effective compliance and disclosure system is implemented within the regulatory environment to combat financial crimes.

Ladies and gentlemen in attendance,


As you know, the supervisory authorities in the Arab countries face challenges regarding the development of the non-bank financial sector and raising awareness of its importance and understanding its risks, especially the insurance sector, which is considered an important element in enhancing financial stability, as its role is to protect individuals and property from risks, in addition to accumulating and developing national savings. To promote economic development. In the Arab countries, the insurance sector plays an important role in supporting the national economy as it is one of the most important sectors of non-banking financial services, as it contributes to supporting economic activities and maintaining their stability.

The insurance sector in the Arab countries has witnessed growth in recent years, coinciding with the developments taking place in the economies of the Arab region, which enhance the need for insurance services. The total outstanding insurance premiums at the end of 2020 amounted to approximately $39.5 billion for all types of conventional and Islamic insurance, compared to $38.9 billion. at the end of 2019.

Despite the growth recorded in the existing balance of insurance premiums, it still needs to expand, reflecting the opportunities available for the growth of the sector, as these premiums do not exceed about 1.9 percent of the gross domestic product of Arab countries, which is less than similar rates for regional groups. other. Also, the market share of the insurance sector in the Arab countries represents 0.75 percent of the global insurance market, which is a modest share when compared to the market shares of other regions, which reflects the importance of the supervisory authorities in the Arab countries to continue their efforts to develop this sector .

Ladies and gentlemen in attendance,


There is no doubt that the application of sound governance practices in line with the best international standards, including the principles of the International Association of Insurance Supervisory Bodies, helps in enabling the insurance sector in our Arab countries to achieve its great potential for growth . The application of controls also enhances the confidence of dealers in the market and attracts more foreign investments, and this has been proven by many studies in all markets that apply corporate governance, in addition to the role of this in increasing credibility and transparency in these markets . The application of governance in insurance companies occupies an important privacy, as it seeks to protect the rights of policyholders and beneficiaries, in addition to protecting shareholders and other related parties.

It is no secret to you that the insurance market relies to a large extent on having a foundation of trust and a good reputation. The crises have shown that these two elements take a great deal of time and effort to establish, but that they can be lost in a very short time. Therefore, it is very important for the insurance sector in the Arab region to build a strong culture of trust and transparency by raising standards of governance. Many international studies, and in our Arab region as well, indicate that the improvement in the financial performance of a number of insurance companies came as a result of applying effective governance to insurance companies, which leads to an increase in transparency and confidence that is reflected in the company's financial performance .

On the other hand, various types of financial crimes are more influential and more dangerous to the safety and efficiency of the financial sector and its ability to finance, and undermine opportunities for economic growth, especially at the present time in light of the rapid progress in the applications of modern technologies and the expansion of electronic commerce activities and cross-border financial operations, and thus The globalization of financial crimes and the evolution of their forms and patterns.

Ladies and gentlemen in attendance,


Financial technologies and their various applications present opportunities and challenges for insurance companies, as the nature and scope of financial risks, as traditionally understood, have changed dramatically as a result of the increasing reliance on modern technologies, which requires taking into account the balance between stimulating the employment of modern technologies to increase access to insurance services on the one hand, and the need on the one hand. Others to develop controls and tools that help to guard against risks and crimes that may arise from them .

Through the workshop today, we look forward to working to shed light on the risks faced by insurance companies, as a result of committing financial crimes and their impact on the stability of financial systems, and the best ways to increase the effectiveness of combating them, especially in light of innovations and modern financial technologies and the impact of the Corona pandemic on financial crimes, in an effort to achieve balance as She mentioned between developing innovations in the insurance sector, promoting compliance with legislation and controls and ensuring data protection in these companies and cyber security.

 I do not want to prolong your stay. I wish the meeting success, looking forward to the continued cooperation of the Arab Monetary Fund with insurance supervisory bodies and financial information units, in order to serve the development of the insurance sector in the Arab countries and increase its contribution to economic activity. I also look forward to welcoming you to Abu Dhabi on future occasions.

Finally, I would like to thank the United Arab Emirates for the great care and support it provides as the headquarters country of the Arab Monetary Fund, which undoubtedly contributes to the Fund's carrying out the tasks entrusted to it.
 
Peace, mercy and blessings of God,,
