Week in Financial Education (June 28, 2021)

Welcome to the latest WIFE. For Part 1, we wrote a new set of insurance company practice questions (PQs). I was recently asked how much insurance is assigned in the FRM. Surprisingly little. You might expect insurance to be prevalent in Operational Risk (P2.T7) but it makes but three appearances in all of Part 2. For the Part 2 PQs, I wrote a few sets of questions on Bodie’s style analysis, namely this is the attribution of portfolio performance into asset allocation versus security selection. Have a good study week!
