Insurance Company Share Trading Recommendations


There are a few listed insurance companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) such as QBE, AXA, AMP, IAG and SUN. QBE remains Citigroup Investment Research's (CIR) stand out pick. Despite its strong recent run, CIR still view QBE as their top pick in the Australian insurance sector. It looks likely to report a very strong result – their 22.2% insurance margin forecast is top of the market and we flag upside risk.
