This paper analyses the responses received to a questionnaire on the supervision of financial conglomerates from the twelve countries represented on the Tripartite Group of Bank, Securities and Insurance Regulators (Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States).
For the purposes of this questionnaire, the term "financial conglomerate" was defined as "any group of companies under common control whose exclusive or predominant activities consist of providing significant services in at least two different financial sectors (banking / securities / insurance)". In relation to international financial conglomerates, responses covered the operation of branches as well as separately incorporated subsidiaries.
