INSURANCE & REINSURANCE
The availability of insurance plays a critical role in today’s economy, safeguarding individuals, businesses, and organizations against the financial consequences of extraordinary events. A sound understanding of insurance policies and risk assessments is critical for decision makers in companies of all sizes.
Still, navigating the intricate world of insurance and re-insurance is a complex task, requiring familiarity not only with specific practices and usages, but also with very specific terminology and concepts.
