Spotlight – In international business, almost every market around the world does things in a different way. This often leads to misunderstandings and unfulfilled expectations. However, different does not need to mean difficult and knowledge of the needs and characteristics of specific geographic markets is an advantage to those who are active in the global economy. These articles help you understand different aspects of the insurance industry around the world, enabling those who do business there to feel more “at home, abroad.”

“Some say that brokers are a breed apart.” This is how Guernsey Finance opens a discussion paper on how captive insurance offers a new revenue stream for brokers. Guernsey Finance (http://www.guernseyfinance.com/) is a joint industry and Government initiative to defend and promote the long term reputation, stability and development of Guernsey as an international centre of excellence for financial services. We are very pleased to publish two Spotlight articles penned by them. The second will appear next month.
