This offers a detailed examination of the convergence between the insurance industry and the capital markets, as traditional insurance is overtaken by its new role as an asset class. It discusses the main issues and trends affecting the industry, how it is responding to increasing market pressure, and how insurance risks are now being priced and exchanged on the markets.
