There are no business and industrial activities in the world without Insurance and Risk Management. Nobody is allowed to bring a vehicle to the road without Insurance. Nobody is given a letter of credit facilities from a bank without insurance. Due to the labour shortage in the country, home insurance policies are in high demand to substitute the security personnel. Insurers, through the loss prevention activities, contribute to the economy by decreasing the chance of loss and insurance contribute to social and business stability by taking up the uncertainties in risk that families or business may face. Insurance Operations professionals involved in the strategic decision-making process of the company to deliver better results to policyholders and shareholders. Therefore Insurance Operations staff act as the back born of an insurance company by directly getting involved in the operational work and strategic decision implementation rather than being in the back office by doing a routine data entry job.

The insurance business is not all about sales or marketing, it requires professionals with insurance qualification to drive the operational task to deliver better results to all the stakeholders of the business. The insurance industry has two main parties directly involved in the business process apart from the support services, namely sales staff and operations staff. Academic qualification is one thing which widens knowledge and thinking pattern, but working in a professional environment is one that gives the pedigree that drives the business and that’s the module insurance industry gives professionalism.
