The papers released outline principles for banking, securities and insurance supervisors for ensuring through the regulatory and supervisory process, the prudent management and control of (1) risk concentrations (RCs) and (2) intra-group transactions and exposures (ITEs).

The papers being released form part of the compendium of documents that were published in February of this year dealing with the supervision of financial conglomerates.
