Timetric's 'Insight Report: Insurance Markets after the Global Financial Crisis' report analyzes the performance of the global insurance industry while dealing with the impact of the global financial crisis, which had a negative impact on the insurance industry, particularly in developed markets. However, the insurance industry in developed markets has finally managed to emerge from crisis, showing progressive signs of growth. In contrast, emerging markets were largely shielded from the impact of the crisis, and recorded robust growth, fueled by rises in disposable income and consumer awareness of the benefits of insurance.

Report Highlights

* Insurers across the world are making strategic decisions to execute corporate deals, expand into new territory, achieve economies of scale and strengthen distribution channels.
* The global financial crisis adversely affected underwriting profitability in the US and several European countries. To offset underwriting losses, insurers had to focus on returns on investments to improve overall profitability.
* The sovereign debt crisis in European countries resulted in all EU member countries, except the UK and Czech Republic, signing a fiscal compact to consolidate their fiscal spending. An important aspect of this policy is government initiatives to reduce social security spending, which are expected to encourage the public to privately purchase life and health insurance.
* Technological innovation has become a key priority among insurers, which have increased their use of technology across all aspects of their operations, such as targeting potential customers, improving underwriting practice and strengthening distribution channels.
