An efficient financial reporting disclosure is a yardstick in measuring the strength of any company. The financial reporting disclosure of non-life insurance companies of Bangladesh is the topic of this thesis paper. For the ease of study the disclosures are divided into two categories –mandatory and non-mandatory financial reporting disclosures. The study has been conducted on the listed non-life insurance companies of Bangladesh.
The selection of listed non-life insurance companies has been done in a systematic and representative way. Among 32 companies, 13 companies have been selected to conduct the study. Annual Report 2012 and 2011 has been taken into considerations since the Annual Reports are the yardstick and mirror of the financial reporting disclosures.
The study has been structured with the use of checklists of mandatory disclosures, non-mandatory disclosures and financial reporting standards. These checklists have been analyzed very well to get the actual scenario of the financial reporting disclosure conditions of the non-life insurance companies. This revealed that most companies have poor financial reporting disclosure conditions. With proper compliance with the financial reporting standards this poor condition can be made efficient.
