JAKARTA, KOMPAS β€” The government is preparing steps to transform the insurance industry and the nonbank financial industry (IKNB) and their businesses. This effort is carried out to strengthen the insurance industry while increasing public confidence, which has been disturbed by a case of default on claims that befell PT Asuransi Jiwasraya and Life Insurance with Bumiputera.

The transformation measures prepared by the government include the establishment of a policy guarantor institution, strengthening the legal basis for the Financial System Stability Committee (KSSK), an omnibus law on the financial sector in the form of a Bill on Development and Strengthening of the Financial Sector, and the strengthening of regulations related to the supervision and governance of the nonbanking financial sector by the Financial Services Authority (OJK).
