The subject of my dissertation is satellite pre-launch insurance. I will be discussing the argument that technological advances in the satellite industry have reduced risk to pre-launch insurers.
The title is set out as a statement "Satellite Pre-Launch Insurance: Technological advances reduce risk for underwriters". There is an opportunity to question this assumption by the final word in the title, "Discuss". This presentation was deliberate. When I began my research, although I had a notion of whether the statement was valid, I did not have the evidence to either substantiate or refute it. As the theme develops I will first explore the arguments and facts that support the statement and then investigate those that challenge it. This discussion will be split into two sections within the main text. I will then conclude the debate.
This article appeared in the Journal of insurance research and practice and was submitted as an FCII dissertation (Major achievement - option 2).
