As the North American economies continue their rebound, insurers are faced with the perplexing challenge of whether to diversify their investment strategy away from the safety of fixed income to equities and alternative areas. With growing demand for reporting to management and regulators, insurers need to achieve seamless communication from investment officer to management board to regulator.

The fourth annual Insurance Asset Management, North America report will bring together North American based general, life, property and casualty and specialist insurers to examine new investment areas, investment operational structures, risk reporting, regulation and your relationship with your custodian, amongst other topics.
