Observation on data availability/gaps

Capital requirement on catastrophe risk (including natural catastrophe) is currently not explicitly accounted for in the Risk Based Capital (RBC) Framework. As part of the ongoing holistic review of RBC framework, BNM is exploring to include catastrophe risk as a new risk category in insurance/takaful risk capital requirement.
