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.”

The eminent global law firm Clyde & Co has just released the first edition of their International Reinsurance Newsletter. This is a further reminder of the broad scope of information our readers regularly have to sift through. We have studied this new document and with updates on major regions of the globe and pertinent comment, this is a worthwhile read. It also discusses the increase of cyber attacks and news of Dubai as an emerging reinsurance hub.
