Bermuda Insurance Report Q1 2016 - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Nov 22 2015

Bermuda's easy business environment has allowed the establishment of a major global centre for reinsurance, providing offshore services to insurers from North America and beyond. A recent wave of consolidation has yet to finish, although the greatest moves may be behind us.

Bermuda is firmly established within the framework of the global insurance market, providing reinsurance services to companies in North America primarily, but also on a global scale. Long-term reinsurance saw significant growth in 2013, but remains far smaller than the non-life sector. Non-life cover prominently features catastrophe reinsurance, providing cover for insurers exposed to the risks posed by hurricanes, floods, fires and other natural disasters. In recent years, in part because of falling catastrophe premiums, Bermuda's reinsurers have diversified their product exposure to include a range of varied and highly-specialised products to suit all requirements.

In 2015, we expect total gross premiums to grow by just 1.4% to USD171bn, with many global markets still struggling behind weak economies and dollar strength driving up the local currency costs for insurers in many European and Latin American markets. Over 60% of premiums will be written in short-term lines of business, although this share will diminish over the next ten years as increased demand for life insurance across both developed and emerging markets continues to grow. Furthermore, a downward trend in catastrophe premiums shows no sign of reversal, given the development of a number of alternative measures. Key drivers will continue to include increased volumes, product innovation and increasing numbers of active insurers. On balance, we think that the life segment will continue to grow faster than the non-life segment.
