Thematic reviews

We regularly undertake thematic reviews on risk, governance and compliance of banks and insurers we supervise. We also carry out thematic reviews on other topics related to our core mandate of maintaining a sound and efficient financial system.

About our thematic reviews

Our Thematics team conducts the reviews using in-depth desktop analysis, on-site visits and interviews. The reviews may result in:

  1. recommendations to industry to improve risk management and governance
  2. input to our future policy development and reviews
  3. more intensive supervisory engagement or action.

At the end of each review, we publish a report and our supervisors follow up on any recommendations made in the review report, both with banks or insurers that participated in the review and the wider sector.

Cross-sector thematic review on governance

We collaborated with the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) to conduct a cross-sector thematic review of regulated entities’ governance practices. In September 2023, we released our Governance Thematic Review report.
