MSA Researcher Life/Health Software

Research Canada’s Life/Health/Fraternal Insurance Industry With the Most Powerful Analytical Tool Available

MSA Researcher Life/Health Dashboard

MSA Researcher Life/Health/Fraternal contains data from 1996-present which includes extremely detailed regulatory statement data on over 140 companies. Researcher fully accommodates the new OSFI/CCIR Life-1/Life-2 statement format that was introduced at year-end 2005. Historical OSFI-54/55 data has been mapped wherever possible allowing for easier multi-year analysis.

Furthermore, MSA has carefully mapped all statement types (Life-1, Life-2, OSFI-54, 55, 56 and OSFI-77) to a common platform, enabling seamless analysis across all company types. Where mapping is not possible, original data has been retained maximizing flexibility without loss of granularity.

Information through Q3-2019 is now available.
