LONDON, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The insurance industry is slowly adapting to new capital and regulatory
requirements even as they operate in a challenging market environment. The
industry is facing slow growth and is under pricing pressure, however, the
main focus for insurers such as CNO Financial Group Inc. (NYSE: CNO), Assurant
Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), ING Groep N.V. (NYSE: ING) and Old Republic International
Corporation (NYSE: ORI) will be to improve operating efficiencies. The
industry is also focusing on divesting non-core assets. On Friday, insurance
stocks ended on a mixed note even as the broad market rallied after concerns
over Cyprus's bailout deal eased a little. StockCall has taken an interest in
these companies and you can now sign up to download the free technical
research on CNO, AIZ, ING, and ORI at
