Private insurance companies operate under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance (House of Representatives, 1992) (Mahendradhata et al., 2017, p.44). Otoritas Jasa Keuangan Republik Indonesia is the regulatory body for private insurance and re-insurance companies. Peraturan OJK no. 71/POJK.05/2016 regulates on the financial health of the companies, determining areas of investments allowed with its assets, governing its liabilities, etc. (Otoritas Jasa Keuangan Republik Indonesia, 2016).
