Insurance and risk management make up an immense, complex global industry, one which is constantly changing. Competition continues to heat up as mergers and acquisitions create international mega-firms. As the insurance industry grows more global, underwriters see huge potential in China, the world's fastest-growing business market, as well as India, Indonesia, Africa and other emerging markets.
