Ireland and the Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure24/07/2014Ireland and the Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure
The Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure (MIP), introduced in late 2011, is one of the key components of the reformed European economic governance framework. With its goal of ensuring that macroeconomic imbalances do not emerge as they did in the 2000s, the MIP is part of a strengthened EU economic surveillance framework and is designed to complement the revised Stability and Growth Pact. While it is not clear to what extent the presence of an MIP in the last decade would have reduced Irish imbalances before the financial crisis, it would, at the very least, have placed more of a spotlight on credit and competitiveness developments. With Ireland exiting its Economic Adjustment Programme in December 2013 it is now subject to the MIP. There has been a reduction in the scale of Irish imbalances since the recession; internal imbalances are improving but some will take time to unwind from their current high levels, while external imbalances are currently less of a concern.
Reinsurance in Ireland:Development and Issues24/07/2014Reinsurance in Ireland:Development and Issues
Ireland has the second-highest number of reinsurance companies in Europe, with its asset size corresponding to over 30 per cent of GDP. The Irish reinsurance industry plays a significant role in the global market. Using aggregated company-level data, the contribution of reinsurance to the Irish economy is shown to be relatively low compared with other insurance businesses. This article examines factors which contribute to reinsurance companies locating in Ireland, and attempts to review the potential implications for the reinsurance industry from the introduction of the new EU regulatory framework, Solvency II. The financial stability considerations arising from the location of these companies in Ireland are also explored.
