This category lists government institutions which regulate insurance companies. However, this category does not list central banks or finance ministries, which are listed elsewhere. ODP users should be aware that many regulator sites contain significant amounts of consumer information related to insurance. Some of it is jurisdiction-specific, such as consumer complaints. Much of it is general in nature and applicable to most jurisdictions.
