Despite the importance of insurance in enabling individual and collective social, economic, and financial activities, discussions about its role in the economy and the risks it can generate for financial markets are surprisingly limited. The core motivation for publishing this book is to bring together academics, regulators, and industry experts to provide a multifaceted array of research and perspectives on insurance, its role and functioning, and the potential
systemic risk it could create. While these debates develop slowly and under public scrutiny, we hope that this book stimulates further research and debate to address the key questions and challenges
faced by the insurance sector going forward.
