Produced by the Knowledge Center, expert training from S&P Global Market Intelligence
Analyzing insurance companies isn’t hard – but it is different. Different, that is, from the framework learned in classroom and many professional settings. Insurance 101 provides the foundational work necessary to understand the basic products, accounting, and economics of the Life and Property/Casualty insurance industries. Day two focuses on valuation techniques where attendees will learn how most equity professionals value insurance companies and stocks. Attendees will learn the strengths and weaknesses of several valuation techniques – explored through both classwork and case studies.
This two day class is recommended for those that have little or no insurance or analysis/credit experience and are interested in an introductory presentation.
