Book - Risk Management for Insurers, Third Edition

Book description

The introduction of Solvency II will drastically redesign the supervisory rules for regulatory capital for insurance companies. The insurance industry is therefore in desperate need of an up-to-date risk management book which contains a comprehensive exploration of Solvency II before implementation begins. The resilience of risk management systems in anticipation of Solvency II must be ensured.

This incredibly timely new edition of Risk Management for Insurers places this regulation within the wider context of insurance risk management best practice. Industry expert René Doff presents this fully updated accessible reference for the whole insurance industry that newly includes:

  • More detailed discussion of Solvency II, with its three pillars examined separately;
  • The latest technical guidance from the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority and the European Commission;
  • The impact of risk governance and risk culture;
  • An up-to-date overview of Basel III; and
  • The significance of the International Financial Reporting Standards.

Risk Management for Insurers emphasises practical risk management concepts, rather than technical calculations and detailed theory. What's more, all concepts and terms are applied to clear illustrative examples and the regulation and supervision developments are simple to follow.

The book is recommended for risk managers, actuaries, controllers, accountants, auditors, corporate finance managers, underwriting and reinsurance managers, investment managers, equity analysts and financial consultants.

Customer Reviews

Average customer reviews for Risk Management for Insurers, Third Edition

Great investment, this book teaches all you need to know about risk management for insurers

As a strategy consultant this book has helped me to understand the history and impact of Solvency II on the insurance industry. It answered all the questions on risk management that I was afraid to ask (eg. about VaR, embedded options, economic capital, SCR, similarity with Basel III, COSO framework etc), and it has helped me to prepare board level presentations linking state of the art risk management insights with scenario based strategy methodologies. Academic quality combined with practical value!
