Certificate in Insurance Company Analysis

Certificate | 40 CPD pts | 5 Days | Classroom or Live Online

This course can either be taken in the classroom or live online. Get in touch to find out more. 

Made up of two courses (Fundamentals of Insurance Financial Statements and Insurance Company Analysis), this five-day professional development program from Fitch Learning will explore a systematic approach to analyse the credit risk and financial strength of life and non-life and reinsurance companies.

Participants will walk away from this course being able to:

  • Distinguish the risks inherent in the main products offered by life, non-life (P&C) and reinsurance companies and recognize how these are reflected in the financial statements
  • Understand the key components of an insurance company’s income statement, balance sheet and cashflow statement
  • Recognize the impact of differing accounting standards, reserving policies and changes in external variables (such as interest rates and asset prices) on the financial statements
  • Apply a structured approach to identify key risks and mitigants when transacting with insurance and reinsurance companies, and to appreciate the main methods of capital-raising by insurers
  • Appreciate how economic, competitive and regulatory issues impact the risk profile, performance and financial health of an insurance company
  • Understand the business and financial risks inherent in the life and non-life insurance and reinsurance industries
  • Use qualitative and quantitative analysis and market indicators to distinguish strong and weak performers by sector and to detect early warning signals of deteriorating financial strength
