The situation of Ukraine's insurance sector has deteriorated over the last year. The prospects remain bleak.

The assessment and transfer of risk is the essence of insurance. Many of the emerging markets that are surveyed by BMI are countries with a (very) difficult geo-political or security situation and/or very significant economic problems. Yet it is still common to find insurance companies that are thriving, thanks to their profound understanding of the local situation, ability to develop innovative solutions, strong brands and access to finance.

Most companies note weakness in premiums and/or profitability.

One of the fundamental challenges, in a country whose eastern parts are in a state of near civil war, is that the multi-nationals who are active across Central and Eastern Europe really do not have a stake in Ukraine. A disaster (or, less likely, massive and profitable growth) in the Ukrainian subsidiaries of Allianz, VIG, PZU, UNIQA or AXA, for instance, or a smaller group such as Grawe, really would have very little difference. In the context of the region, Ukraine's non-life segment is a sideshow.

Meanwhile, the life segment hardly exists at all. No insurer...
