Abstract

Explains that derivatives sellers see insurance companies, because of their representation of some of the biggest financial groups, as a prime target worldwide. Goes on to show the part played by insurance companies using derivates. States that there are only 3 areas where options, generally, can be used in the context of investment management for the insurance companies: use by individual fund managers of stock options; transformation of wholesale products into retail products; and the use of options at balance sheet level. Summarizes that large insurance companies need to fit use of equity and bond derivatives within understandable policies.

Abstract

Investment markets are becoming less rather than more efficient. The author argues that this is because qualitative analysis depends on individuals who are not objective but rely on value judgements which are sometimes successful and sometimes not. The results also depend on the particular individuals remaining within the organisation. The alternative is quantitative value management, which depends far more on independent number‐crunching and computer analysis.
