Information contained in insurance company financial statements is extremely important to consider when evaluating an insurance company for investment. However, the way an insurance company generates profit is often poorly understood by investors. In this webinar, net premiums earned, underwriting margin and income, and investment income are introduced to understand an insurance company’s top and bottom lines. A few financial ratios unique to insurance companies are introduced to help investors determine the financial health of an insurance company. Finally, sources of financial information will be illustrated from the Value Line stock report and annual report for a well-known insurance company.
