Investigate the role insurance plays in the financial planning process. Study risk management and learn how it may reduce the financial impact which may result from catastrophic events.
Both risk management and insurance are complex topics that span a broad set of concepts, ideas, theory, and practical applications.
The focus of this course will be on defining risk, identifying risks that are insurable, and outlining the most appropriate forms of insurance for any given set of insurable risks. Learn about the relevant laws and regulations that dictate both the form and preparation of financial advice on insurance products.
