CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AS AN ELEMENT OF STRATEGY OF INSURANCE COMPANIES
Cilj ovog rada je da se analizira odnos između društveno odgovornog poslovanja (DOP) osiguravajućih društava i njihovog tržišnog učešća. Glavna ideja ovog istraživanja jeste da ukaže na to da aktivnosti usmerene na primenu DOP treba posmatrati kao investiciju, a ne kao trošak. Osiguranje se zasniva na poverenju, a poverenje se uglavnom gradi društveno odgovornim poslovanjem. Efikasna primena društveno odgovornog poslovanja ključan je instrument za postizanje konkurentske prednosti u delatnosti osiguranja, s obzirom na to da omogućava razvoj pozitivne svesti o određenom osiguravajućem društvu. Istraživanje je zasnovano na javno dostupnim podacima o 16 osiguravajućih društava koja posluju na srpskom tržištu osiguranja. Rezultati istraživanja ukazuju na to da su osiguravajuća društva koja su integrisala DOP u svoju strategiju i primenjuju načela održivog poslovanja uočena kao društveno odgovorna od strane sadašnjih i potencijalnih osiguranika i drugih zainteresovanih strana, što rezultira povećanjem premije osiguranja i tržišnog učešća. Ključne reči: osiguranje, preduzeće, društvena odgovornost, strategija JEL klasifikacija: G22

Autori: prof. dr Boris Marović i dr Dragan Marković Izdavač: Princip press
PRODUCT LIABILITY RISK MANAGEMENT AND THE ROLE OF INSURANCE
Liability insurance, as a part of nonlife insurance, has a special role in developed economies. In the area of product liability, risk management as well as insurance emerged relatively recently. The reason lies in the fact that the very existence of this risk has been neglected for a long time. However, in developed economies, first in the USA then in Europe and Japan, more and more attention is being drawn to this risk and to the issue of consumer protection. Despite the underdevelopment of this type of risk management and insurance in Serbia, we think that placing focus on both global and European trends in this area is important. The paper presents two EU Directives related to this area, the available forms of product liability risk protection and characteristics of insurance coverage for this type of risk.
LIFE INSURANCE SECURITISATION
One of the key trends of contemporary insurance and reinsurance market is the emergence of receivables and risk securitisation. In insurance, the basis for application of securitisation is the application of similar mechanisms in the banking industry. However, securitisation in the insurance industry has special characteristics in relation to banking. The aim of this paper is to lay foundations for future theoretical research and practical application of these mechanisms in Serbia, and to highlight the main concept of securitization in life insurance by presenting the main characteristics, advantages and disadvantages from different perspectives.
THE ANALYSIS OF CURRENT STATE AND TRENDS IN SERBIAN INSURANCE INDUSTRY
Insurance premiums, as the key development indicators of insurance industry, have recorded significant growth rates in Serbia, as well as in other developing countries.

The analysis covers the period from 2004 to 2009 and focuses on the developments in premiums, claims, reserves, ownership structure, companies’ market shares, portfolio structures and regulatory changes.
