COCON 1.2 1Investments

COCON 1.2.1GRP

COCON refers in a number of places to ‘investments’. The Glossary meaning of investment is wide and is not just limited to the ordinary dictionary meaning.

COCON 1.2.2GRP

Therefore, for example, an approved person performing controlled functions in a Solvency II firm or a small non-directive insurer2 should note that that term includes rights under a contract of insurance, meaning they should also take into account those parts of COCON which provide guidance on individual conduct rules that refer to ‘investments’.

COCON 1.2.3GRP

Where guidance refers to risks associated with investments, that will include risks applicable to rights under a contract of insurance including for example the risk of inadequate cover.
