The Insurance, Financial and Actuarial Analysis programme provides students with a conceptual understanding of, and the analytical skills necessary for a career in insurance, financial and actuarial analysis. It also gives them a sound knowledge of the structure, practices and business functions of the insurance industry. In response to the needs of the market, the programme is rooted in Hong Kong’s institutional environment, although students are also exposed to international issues and practices.
