Why Choose this Training Course?

Understanding the nature / costs of risk, the purpose and scope of social insurance, the point at which private insurance takes over and the balance between protecting disadvantaged people, affordability, fairness to taxpayers, incentives to save, the elimination, mitigation, transfer of risks, the needs of business, wealth creation and insurance product design, is essential.

Within the spectrum of risks there are those which because of their contingent and unpredictable nature cannot be insured against and there are others which because of cost make it difficult for many to afford the premiums; (57% of Americans do not earn enough to even pay income tax and many others in the UK and Europe also  earn very little). This is where social insurance comes into play.

Individuals, insurance professionals and other professionals involved on tax, pensions, health & unemployment provisions, actuaries and risk consultants, all need to consider the appropriate balance  of private and public sector social insurance provision that delivers inter-generational fairness, fairness to taxpayers, mitigation of hardship for the disadvantaged whilst preserving incentives to work, business and saving.

Sensible financial and risk planning, social insurance policy-making calls for the reliance on privately funded provision to be greatest within the groups most able to afford it with social insurance taking up a bigger proportion of protection for those genuinely unable to provide for themselves. Understanding where one set of provision stops, income distribution / savings ratios and demographic trends determines the nature of private insurance provision and its design whilst risks determine underwriting and claims policies.
