Insurance: From Underwriting to Derivatives: Asset Liability Management in Insurance Companies
An in-depth look at the increasingly significant convergence between the insurance industry and the capital markets.
This important publication, by two premier financial experts, explores the unique convergence of finance and insurance. The book covers the basics of property-casualty insurance, securitizing insurance risks, looks at life insurance in the United States and ALM in insurance. It addresses the questions and concerns of investment banks, brokerage firms and the insurance/reinsurance sector itself, examines ongoing trends and issues, and how current market pressures on insurance companies do not just create challenges but actually point the way to future promising developments.
