The market valuation and trading volume effects of the creation of the florida hurricane catastrophe fund on property-liability insurersFaculty Publications
Abstract"One purpose of this study is to examine the market reaction (both share prices and trading volume) of P&L insurers to regulatory changes created by the Cat Fund legislation. Another purpose is an examination of various theories of economic regulation applied to the property-liability insurance industry.
