This fully updated user-friendly third edition of Risk Management for Insurers will quickly help you get to grips with risk management terms and techniques, and how they relate specifically to the insurance industry. It also demonstrates how Solvency II is already shaping the regulatory agenda and its likely impact on the insurance industry. 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.

    This book gives the feeling of being on a tourist bus, with an elderly Dutchman in a tweed jacket showing you around, his pleasant but somewhat overly academic voice reeling out a script he's been honing and flattening for decades. There is a lot of waffle (especially in the early sections) and material errors appear throughout the book. Fundamentally this is tackling the topic only from a high-level perspective (watch the author squirm to avoid explaining how a correlation matrix works!) and th This book gives the feeling of being on a tourist bus, with an elderly Dutchman in a tweed jacket showing you around, his pleasant but somewhat overly academic voice reeling out a script he's been honing and flattening for decades. There is a lot of waffle (especially in the early sections) and material errors appear throughout the book. Fundamentally this is tackling the topic only from a high-level perspective (watch the author squirm to avoid explaining how a correlation matrix works!) and this I found especially frustrating as I would have appreciated more practical insight, and illustrations of risk management practices on a more operational level. All in all, there are painfully few examples or illustrations. A glossary would also have been very handy. Also, the book seems to have only partially been revised to match its 2015 publication date. So - thin on content, and heavy in price. You buy it because that's all there is. And the basic structure is good, as far as it goes - outline of what financials risks are / recent industry perspective / a run through modern insurance regulation around the world / comparison with banking environment / high level risk management. But there is definitely room for a more insightful competitor publication.
