Research and Markets Adds Global Insurance Handbook to 2005 Offering

March 10, 2005

Research and Markets announced the addition of The Global Insurance Handbook 2005 to their offering.

The increasing size of risk in the world is reportedly influencing multinational and global companies to protect ever larger balance sheets against traditional and untangible risks. Many insurance groups have had to expand their operating platforms and it is reportedly essential that insurers have the necessary systems in place to react to global changes and regulatory activity.

With a predominant focus on legislation and insurance law, the Global Insurance Handbook presents the main issues at the forefront of insurance players’ agendas.

Supported by industry bodies such as the International Underwriting Association and AIRMIC, the Handbook provides expert analysis and advice on trends, industry standards, the importance of good risk management and reacting to challenges in the industry — all key factors to succeeding in insurance investment. Also includes a series of market reviews focusing on insurance developments in Brazil, Germany, Japan, North America, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and the U.S.
