Many risks face the global insurance industry today, including the aging populations of developed countries, competition from other financial institutions, and both disparate and quickly changing regulatory demands, to name a few. The book’s contributors offer their unique perspectives on challenges confronting the insurance industry and how attendant risks can be most effectively managed.

Industry Reviews

"Global Perspectives on Insurance Today is an excellent resource for senior executives, professional advisors, legislators, policy makers, regulators, and senior level or graduate students who have not confronted the unique issues currently challenging global insurers and reinsurers on a daily basis. These businesses stand apart in many respects from banks and other financial institutions. The industry and regulatory experts contributing to the book identify unique global, national and local insurance and reinsurance operational, accounting, investment, regulatory and risk issues facing the industry, and offer their individual perspectives on balancing and reconciling geographical disparities." - Dick P.M. Verbeek, Vice Chairman Emeritus Aon Group Inc.

"Global Perspectives on Insurance Today" is required reading for all practitioners of (re) insurance at the national and global level. Many of the brightest minds from industry stakeholders of mature and emerging markets present succinct, astute reviews of the history of the regulatory environment as well as forward-looking proposals." - Walter Bell, Chairman, Swiss Re America Holding Corporation

"Very interesting and educating. A must for those who are convinced that regulatory cooperation is necessary as well as for those who are not convinced yet!" - Karel Van Hulle, Head of Insurance and Pensions, European Commission
