This course addresses the most important issues related to the risk, capital and liquidity management in insurance and reinsurance companies. The principles-based approach makes the course suitable for professionals from all types of insurance and reinsurance companies.
Insurance and reinsurance professionals (early and intermediate level) who work at (or interface with) the risk and finance functions and who want to improve and expand their knowledge in finance and risk management topics with a specific focus on insurance companies.
Participants have a graduate degree and several years of working experience. A working knowledge of quantitative techniques is beneficial but not indispensable for a successful completion. The course language is English.
Participants will gain an understanding of the main issues in risk, capital and liquidity management for insurance and reinsurance companies. They will also be provided with a consistent conceptual economic framework that takes regulatory side constraints into consideration.
