  • Japan Insurance Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 79
    BMI View: The increasingly negative domestic economic outlook will impact upon the Japanese insurance sector in 2015, with the weakening of the yen resulting in a contraction in premiums in US dollar terms in both the life and non-life sector. Throughout the remainder of our forecast period to 2019, we expect to see only limited single digit growth in premiums, and some sub-sectors may record an overall decrease as demand falls. The overall insurance market remains robust however, and will c......

    BMI View: Insurers in Lebanon and Jordan face some key risks during our forecast period through to 2019, including downwards pressure on pricing caused by intense competition within a fragmented marketplace and demographic challenges. In Lebanon, economic uncertainty and currency fluctuations mean we expect to see overall contractions in life and non-life insurance by 2019. The outlook for Jordan is more positive, with healthier domestic economic growth supporting expansion of a range of lif......

    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 78
    BMI View: The Netherlands boasts a well-developed but extremely mature, saturated insurance market offering limited growth potential and minimal opportunities for new entrants. The country's economic downturn has further limited the growth of the sector with many companies turning to the government for financial support. As the economy starts to gain momentum the opportunities for local and multinational insurers should start to increase with the increasing privatisation of the healthcare se......

    Synopsis In terms of gross written premium, the Singaporean reinsurance segment grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9% during the review period (2009-2013), partially due to increasing risk awareness and expansion of the insurance industry, with insurers ceding a higher percentage of revenue to reinsurers.

  • New Zealand Insurance Report Q2 2015

    BMI View: The New Zealand insurance sector is relatively mature with a plethora of international firms, many of them Australian-owned, as well as a number of smaller local players leaving relatively little space for new entrants. That said, there is scope for growth in certain areas of the market, not least property insurance which remains an important area of the wider non-life segment given the country's vulnerability to earthquakes and other forms of natural disaster.

    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    BMI View: The Belgian insurance sector is a mature one with all the benefits and downsides that this implies. Across all segments of the market we do not anticipate other than sluggish growth in all sectors in local currency terms.

Notwithstanding such poor growth prospects, the market is a profitable one, pretty much across the board, as a result of disciplined underwritin......

    BMI View: As of early 2015, the latest newsflow from Bermuda's insurance sector confirms the longstanding picture of an innovative and resilient industry. The main challenges remain the trend towards consolidation and the soft market. Softness in pricing is due in part to the relative absence of natural catastrophe losses through 2014 and the abundance of capital - which is in part due to the availability of alternative capital from pension funds.
