We monitor developments in the profitability and exposures, as well as capital adequacy and solvency, of credit institutions, insurance and employee pension institutions and investment firms on the basis of periodic information submitted by supervised entities.
Supervised entities are required to provide periodic reports on their balance sheets and financial results. As well as individual supervised entities, this obligation concerns their groups and consolidation groups, amalgamations and Finnish branches of foreign credit institutions. This required information is more detailed than financial statements published in annual reports. Supervised entities must also provide the supervisor with disclosures of capital adequacy and solvency, and information on numerous different risk areas.
