One Day Course – London EC3

Wednesday 26th September 2018
9am – 5pm

Do you really understand what drives the financial performance of insurers and reinsurers?
Increasingly a proper knowledge of the capital and performance metrics of re/insurers is as crucial to underwriters and brokers as it is to analysts.

Your competitor re/insurers are using Key Performance Indicator comparisons to evaluate themselves vs peers and market benchmarks.

Many of the most widely used financial KPIs can be calculated from published data.  But properly understanding what these mean, what their analytical purpose is and the context for using them is crucial.

Analysing Insurance Company Financial Statements is a one day course designed to help you understand and compare the carriers you work with, and your organisation, in the increasingly sophisticated re/insurance markets.

The course is lead by a highly experienced analyst with a background in equity research and market security.

Who should attend
Underwriters and executives in re/insurers, brokers, MGA’s and other market participants whose role includes understanding the financial profile of the carriers they work with.
