Institutswebsite

Brief description

Insurance economics deals with the structured analysis of economic questions related to the insurance industry with an emphasis on theoretical and empirical investigations of insurance markets. Hence, it tries to deeper look at a multitude of different industry specific business operations, like risk management, controlling or asset management. Students should be enabled to analyse market structures and company processes within the insurance industry. During lectures a special focus will be given to governmental regulations and a further look at specific theoretical issues surrounding the commodity ‘insurance’ itself.

Current research projects focus on risk and insurance theory, empirical studies on insurance supply and demand, topics associated with private and statutory health insurances and the economic evaluation of health services.
