Lifelong Learning Without Security Permits?


Is it possible? What will happen next year? Here you will find out more about the new legislation in progress.

A departmental memorandum (Ds 2017: 17) proposes a new law on insurance distribution. The new law replaces the Insurance Mediation Act, which means that insurance intermediaries providing advice on investment-based insurance products will need permission under the Securities Market Act (2007: 528), as the councils will be regarded as investment advice. The new law and legislative amendments are proposed to take force by February 23, 2018.

It is worth noting is that the relevant intermediary is likely to not be given a transitional period to obtain relevant knowledge. This means that the person who lacks a securities permit in February next year must immediately cease business advice on investment-based insurance products or pension insurance, such as funds and custody insurance.

It is also worth noting that the following policies are exempt from the new rules:
– Non-life insurance products.
– Life insurance products where compensation is paid only on death or invalidity due to injury, illness or disability.
– Pension insurance.
