Plunkett's Insurance Industry Almanac 2006: The Only Complete Reference To The Insurance And Risk Management Industry
The insurance industry is rebounding from its poor financial results of a few years ago. Better risk management, higher premiums and increased use of underwriting information systems have led the way. Meanwhile, the insurance industry is increasingly globalized as cross-border investments and acquisitions continue at a rapid pace. Risk analysis has become more sophisticated. In addition, a large number of related services and technologies have a major influence on the insurance and risk management business. These services include e-commerce, call centers and information technologies. This carefully-researched book (which includes a database of leading companies on CD-ROM) is a complete insurance market research and business intelligence tool-- everything you need to know about the business of insurance and risk management, including Property & Casualty insurers; Life insurers; Personal Lines and Specialty Lines underwriters; Annuities; Reinsurance underwriters; Health Insurance; Globalization of the insurance industry; Insurance brokers; Consulting; and Online insurance trends. The book includes dozens of statistical tables, an industry glossary, a database of industry associations and professional organizations, and our in-depth profiles of more than 300 of the world's leading insurance companies, both in the U.S. and abroad.
