Our fifth insurance word of the week is: Analyst
Insurance Analyst refers to those positions conducting professional research, analysis and evaluation of factors affecting the sale and marketing of insurance.
A professional working for a fund manager or broker whose job is to analyse key industry sectors (e.g. retail, oil, pharmaceuticals) and determine the prospects for the companies operating in them.
Research done by a broker analyst will be made available to the firm’s clients (fund managers) in an attempt to persuade the fund managers to place orders with the brokers and generate commission revenue.
