Although far removed from the worst of the financial crisis, insurance companies are still looking for ways to preserve capital, manage risk and contain costs. Insurers are seeking innovative methods for staying viable in a highly-competitive market, sometimes through merger and acquisition, or through new product lines and service offerings. At the same time, regulators are paying closer attention to insurance marketing, sales and claims handling.
