Insurance is a dynamic field that covers many diverse disciplines—for example, life insurance, property insurance and group insurance. It also has a special bearing on the capital markets because insurance companies are financial institutions that provide long-term savings, and sell to their clients various saving and investment instruments, such as managers’ insurance, pension insurance and provident funds. Consequently, this sector is closely—and increasingly—regulated by the Supervisor of Insurance through circulars and directives.
