SAA periodically hosts webinars covering important strategies, trends and issues impacting insurers and their investment portfolio. Along with an SAA Principal, each webinar includes expert speakers from an investment management firm with insurance specialization. You can find our recent webinars here:
Investment Perspectives from the Insurer Investment Forum XVI
Global central banks are now the movers and shakers of financial markets to an extent never before seen. While the Fed goes in one direction, the central banks in Europe, Japan and China go another.

Compare and contrast these strategies with the approach utilized at your insurer.
