Economies of Scale in Services: A study of Multinational Insurers
This study investigates whether multinational insurer achieve economies of scale. Using a time-series, cross-sectional design, it analyzes the relationship between expenses and output of multinational insurers. The study finds that multinational insurers achieve economies of scale only up to a point, and rather than benefitting from scale, the most internationally diverse insurers suffer diseconomies. The conclusion is that the benefits of extensive foreign acquisitions by insurers are questionable.© 1998 JIBS. Journal of International Business Studies (1998) 29, 305–323
