ABSTRACT

Risk if not well managed could lead to collapse for most organisations especially those whose core business deals with day to day handling of risk. Risk management should, therefore, be at the core of an organization’s operations by integrating risk management practices into processes, systems and culture of the entire organization. This involves identifying and analysing risks, developing and implementing risk handling techniques and monitoring the progress of these in order to avoid and/or reduce the impact of risk on the financial performance of the firm. The objective of the study was to establish the effect of risk management practices adopted by Nigerian insurance companies on the financial performance of these companies. The study used both primary and secondary data. Primary data was collected through questionnaires eliciting response from the selected respondents. Secondary data was collected by use of desk search techniques from published reports as well as data from financial statements maintained by the organizations. The results were presented using tables and charts. The study established that a majority of insurance companies in Nigeria had adopted risk management practices in their operations and that this had a strong effect on their financial performance. Risk identification was found to be the most significant in influencing financial performance, followed by risk mitigation, risk management program implementation & monitoring and risk assessment & measurement respectively. This study concludes that there is a positive relationship between the adoption of risk management practices and the financial performance of insurance companies in Nigeria.
