Abstract

Insurance company managers are surveyed to discern their alignment with four risk attitudes predicted by Plural Rationality Theory. Each company management team is shown to contain a mix of beliefs, but not always the same mix. Since each belief is tied to a different expectation for appropriate risk management, there are inherent conflicts with a risk management culture that is tied to a single belief. The paper concludes with descriptions of hybrid risk management cultures that would have some appeal to various pairs of the four beliefs.
