In the long-term insurance industry, sound financial investment decisions depend largely on the portfolio management practices of the investment practitioners concerned. The ability of the investment practitioners to make well-informed decisions, as well as the strategies and policies underlying portfolio management practices, are the main issues of this research. Important correlations amongst various aspects of the financial investment decision making process, as well as their association with the general information pertaining to the long-term insurers (which were disclosed during the empirical study), emerge in the closing section of this paper. The conclusions should be of prime interest to long-term insurers as well as investment practitioners who are working in that industry.
