This paper discusses facets of the insurance-finance convergence and their competition. Differences and similarities are emphasized and examples are used to highlight their approaches to pricing. We emphasize situations that are particular to the insurance world, such as non normal risks, catastrophic risks, contagions, and other situations where risks are not easily defined. Some questions relating to the efficiency of portfolio securitization are also raised in light of the latent and macroeconomic risks that have pervaded insurance and financial insurance portfolios during the financial crisis.
