Investor Economics team has welcomed the New Year in style – with the launch of a new research service focused on insurance. The new service builds on a decade-worth of research into this specialized dimension of the wealth management industry and the legacy of the Segregated Funds Report. In addition to the continued in-depth analysis of the individual segregated funds segment, the new monthly service will provide subscribers with insights into all aspects of insurance business, its product landscape and delivery dynamics. The opening issue features our new conceptual framework for measuring andtracking progress of insurance delivery channels. Also on this year’s story board are such hotly-debated topics as competition on the payout continuum, the asset management opportunities on insurance product platforms and permanent life insurance.
