Bannister International Research Organisation is a specialist publisher for the international insurance sector. Our in-depth research covers distinct areas:
Insurance Company Liquidations / Run-Offs;
Asbestos & Environmental Pollution;
London Insurance Market;
Insurance-related Mergers & Acquisitions.
We seek to research areas of the insurance market where there is very little coverage, going far beyond coverage of stock market "quoted" companies, and looking at the other 95% of entities that are rarely if ever covered in other research journals.
Our products page provides overviews on all our current publications.
