On Tuesday, February 5th, BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK), will visit the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to celebrate iShares' suite of 45 Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) that carry an official designation from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) for insurers. As the standard-setter and regulatory support organization, created and governed by U.S. chief insurance regulators, the NAIC rating permits insurers to apply lower capital charge ratios for a majority of fixed income iShares ETFs by looking through to the underlying holdings which are baskets of fixed income securities. The ratings are corresponding to the underlying holdings disclosed on a daily basis. In honor of the occasion, David Lomas, Head of BlackRock's Global Financial Institutions Group within BlackRock's Institutional business will ring the NYSE Opening Bell joined by executives and guests of BlackRock. David Lomas commented: "Insurers continue to face historically low interest rates and limited fixed income supply, challenging their income prospects and stressing their business models. The liquidity that ETFs offer will help insurers face these challenges to gain quick and efficient access to the credit markets." Raman Suri, Head of iShares New Markets Distribution commented: "A recent iShares survey noted a nearly 70% adoption rate of insurers using ETFs for passive exposure. As such, iShares' industry-leading 45 NAIC designations are significant for helping insurers overcome regulatory hurdles and manage their risk-based capital requirements."
