Top executives from Lloyd’s of London, AIG, Prudential Financial Inc. Marsh & McClennan Companies and General Re Corp. are among 21 new appointees to the Federal Advisory Committee on Insurance.

The group, which also includes state regulators and academics, is tasked to advise the Federal Insurance Office on various industry issues. The FIO launched within the U.S. Department of the Treasury as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which monitors the insurance industry and seeks out potential systemic risks to the U.S. financial system. It also helps shape and coordinate the country’s domestic and international insurance policies.

The Federal Advisory Committee on Insurance (FACI), first formed in 2011, was originally supposed to have 15 members, but the U.S. Department of the Treasury said it expanded that to 21 individuals in order to reflect the insurance industry’s diversity.
