Insurance Risk Management 

Good risk management enhances decision making and typically involves improving risk transparency, the control environment, culture and accountability, governance, compliance and reporting. Establishing an efficient and effective risk management framework is fundamental if insurers are to minimise (extreme) losses, reduce volatility of earnings and maximise profits.
