EIOPA has published a Consultation paper on powers for banning insurance-based investment products

The European Commission asked EIOPA for its advice on completing new rules on the intervention powers of national supervisors and EIOPA. This is about powers and procedures for temporarily prohibiting or restricting the marketing, distribution and sale of specific insurance-based investment products. Bans should happen only if serious concerns exist regarding investor protection, orderly functioning and integrity of financial markets, or the stability of the whole or part of the financial system. 

Consulting all stakeholders on this matter is the next step in preparing the Commission. The consultation ends 27 February 2015.

The accounts of OPF members
Individual accounts held at the open funds for their members, where the contributions are paid in the amount and on terms established in separate laws. On accession to a fund, the fund opens an account for the new member to which contributions and transfer payments are paid.
Insurance risk
Commonly understood as an event covered with an insurance; more precisely - the probability of such event taking place.
Payment Services Office
A natural person, a legal person and an organisation unit, which is not a legal person and which, according to the law on payment services, ensures legal capacity to act, which provides payment services to the maximum value of 500 000 EUR a month.
The second pillar of Polish pension system
The mandatory capital part of the pension system, including open pension funds, which are managed by private operators - general pension societies. Similar to the first pillar - the contributions to the second pillar are mandatory (for anyone born after 31 December 1948), but it is possible to choose another fund among those operating on the market. It is also possible to change a fund into another one. An important difference, compared to the first pillar, is that the resources collected in this pillar are invested and may be inherited. The operation of pension funds is subject to detailed provisions and state supervision. The second pillar receives 7,3% of the basic contribution.
