Course description

Certificate in Insurance Company Analysis

The overall goal of this five-day certificate program is to give participants with limited exposure to insurance company financial statements a systematic approach to analyze the credit risk and financial strength of life, non-life and reinsurance companies.

With the threat of a pandemic and global recession, the potential impact on the insurance industry, either from elevated claims experience or capital market volatility, makes it essential more than ever to understand how to undertake a structured analysis of the key risks faced by both life and non-life companies.
