EIOPA, with the support of National Competent Authorities (NCAs), has conducted a thematic review on the functioning of the EU market for credit protection insurance (CPI) products sold via banks (acting as insurance intermediaries) and how well it succeeds in delivering good consumer outcomes.
The thematic review focused on identifying potential sources of conduct risk and consumer detriment in order to allow EIOPA and NCAs to take relevant policy and supervisory measures if needed.
More generally it sought to assess whether consumers are being treated fairly and being placed at the heart of ‘bancassurance’ business model.
