EIOPA appoints new members to its Stakeholder Groups

The Board of Supervisors of the EIOPA has appointed new members to the Insurance and Reinsurance Stakeholder Group (IRSG) and Occupational Pensions Stakeholder Group (OPSG). The new members will take up their appointment on 4 September 2018 and will serve a 2½ years term.

EIOPA considered 215 applications from 25 European countries, submitted following an open call. In its selection, EIOPA aimed to achieve geographical and gender balance, as well as an appropriate representation of different types of stakeholders, in particular seeking to strengthen representation of consumers and beneficiaries.

In this regard, 10 members of the IRSG represent consumers and users of insurance services; in the OPSG the number of representatives of beneficiaries has doubled from 4 to 8. In total, 16 nationalities are represented in each group and women represent almost a third of the members in each group, an increase from the current composition. Some serving members have been reappointed for a second term. New appointments also reflect developments in EIOPA’s strategic priorities, demonstrating expertise in sustainable finance and FinTech. 

The first meetings of the groups in their new composition take place on 19 September 2018 (IRSG) and 17 October 2018 (OPSG).
