Kenya Insurance Report Q4 2015 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 07 2015

By various measures, Kenya's insurance sector is among the most developed in Sub-Saharan Africa. The country has a high level of insurance penetration with premiums equivalent to about 3% of GDP, and is also home to some of Africa's largest insurance groups as well as a number of major multinational firms.

A robust economic backdrop has been a key driver of underwriting activity and is likely to continue to be so over the coming years. A growing middle class and increased levels of households spending are creating an opportunity for both life and non-life insurers to grow their business. With higher disposable incomes, increasingly, Kenyans are gaining awareness and investing in personal lines, including health, property and motor vehicle covers as well as savings and retirement income products. BMI's Country Risk team forecast the economy to expand by 6.7% in 2015 - a revision on our 6.0% growth forecasts - with GDP growth expected to remain steady at about 6% a year through to 2019.

One of the main areas of growth is likely to be in the sale of micro insurance products as companies look to ways to target lower-income groups with limited access to traditional insurance products. Several insurers have signed partnerships agreements with mobile phone operators in recent months, a strategy which has allowed low-income users to use mobile technology to view and purchase insurance products. We expect companies to look increasingly to this and other distribution channels such as bancassurance to grow their customer base, going forward.
