- MetLife (NYSE:MET) is due to meet the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) today in another bid to persuade regulators not to classify the insurer as "systemic."
- Should MetLife receive the designation, it would face scrutiny from the Fed and have to hold high capital levels.
- "MetLife has a strong case on the substance...but the FSOC is not likely to listen," says former Treasury official Phillip Swagel, who's now at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy.
- The FSOC has sixty days to make a decision, which MetLife could then challenge in court if it's unsatisfied.
Jun. 27, 2013, 3:28 AMThe Financial Accounting Standards Board is due to propose changes to accounting rules for insurers that could cause increased earnings volatility and lower sales growth. Insurers would have to recognize premium revenue over time when insurance is being provided rather than when it is received, while the reporting of costs might be delayed as well. Every time a company released earnings, it may have to change its assumptions about its expected income and expenses. | 1 Comment
