macro-economic risks and commercial initiatives by the insurance companies themselves, premiums are
growing rapidly: this is at a time that leading players in both the non-life and the life segments are achieving

the openness of the market to entry by major multinationals, b) the growth in the number of households that
can afford to buy insurance (and/or to save for the long-term) and c) the continuing downward trend in
inflation, interest rates and risk premiums attached to investment.
