North Dakota Commissioner to Serve on Financial Stability Oversight Council

September 18, 2014

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) appointed NAIC President and North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm to serve a two-year term as the state insurance commissioner representative on the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC).

The 15-member FSOC was created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Protection and Consumer Protection Act in 2010 to monitor the safety and stability of the nation’s financial system, identify risks to the system, and coordinate a response to any threats.

Hamm will represent the interests of state insurance regulators on the council. He replaces Missouri Insurance Director John M. Huff who is stepping down after serving two terms on the FSOC.

The council has the authority to identify financial firms, financial market utilities and systemic payment, clearing, or settlement activities whose failure could potentially pose a risk to the financial system.
