FIN 4800 - International Insurance Markets (3)

The course involves an analysis of the mechanisms employed to transfer risk from main street USA exposures to ultimate risk bearers around the world. Students will also learn about the regulatory environments involved in the process. While in London, students will meet with Lloyds of London brokers and underwriters, spend a day on the underwriting floor at Lloyds, learn about wholesale and reinsurance brokering, and attend short seminars at various insurance intermediaries. Students will also have a short time to visit historic and cultural sites during the week.
