Book On Engineering Insurance For Launch

As part of efforts to increase the knowledge base of the Nigerian insurance industry, arrangements have been concluded for the public presentation of the book; “Essentials of Engineering Insurance,” authored by former Managing Director of ACEN Insurance Company Limited, Emmanuel Oyetoyan.

The public presentation holds today July 2, 2015 in Lagos.

The book is borne out of the desire of the author to enrich the knowledge base of the insurance industry in some technical areas.

According to Oyetoyan, it is a known fact that the Nigerian and African insurance industry have continued to witness a downturn in its fortunes due to dearth of knowledge and adherence to sound underwriting principles which the book is meant to correct.

The publication features topics such as premium rating; risk assessment and claims handling. Other aspects are technical surveys and inspection, as well as insurance broking and loss adjusting.

The Deputy Chairman of Hogg Robinson Nigeria, Amos Adeyeye is the Chairman of the event, while Sammy Sotomi, former President of the Institute of Loss Adjusters of Nigeria (ILAN) is the Chief Presenter alongside the Commissioner for Insurance, Fola Daniel.
