Course Overview

This course starts with a broad overview of ways to manage risk, and the approach taken by insurance companies to contain these risks. The nature of the insurance contract, the various types of insurance, and their routine components are examined. The use of insurance as a solution for business problems is also explored. Because most employee group benefits are insurance related, those components of a benefit plan are a focal point of the course. Topics such as insurer solvency and profitability, insurance regulation, insurance contracts, and loss exposures mainly in the area of property and liability insurance will be covered.
