Bangladesh and will try to suggest some steps for overcoming these problems. The insurance
industry faced a shock suddenly. One of the shock is an efficient financial reporting disclosure

Insurance Act 1938 became inactive due to pass Insurance Act 2010. At present, 75
companies are operating their business including foreign companies. Furthermore, this study
