New Study: Israel Insurance Report Q2 2016

The slump in investment earnings presents a short-term challenge to the life segment. Thanks to demographics and rising healthcare costs, health and personal accident insurance should be the sub-sectors that drive growth in the non-life segment.

Latest Updates And Forecasts

Israel's insurance sector has a number of features in common with its counterpart in South Africa. The country's unusual history means that both segments are dominated by a small number of very substantial and sophisticated indigenous composite groups. Life insurance is substantially larger than non-life insurance, and plays an important role as a conduit for organised savings.

In spite of the long-term strengths of the life insurers, the latest results from the major companies (in relation to the first nine months of 2015) indicate that growth in premiums has been slow. Given the fairly sluggish growth of the economy, and financial market conditions which have caused the insurers' incomes from investment to slump, we have revised our forecasts downwards.

The ageing of the population - and rising medical costs - should boost demand for health and personal accident insurance, which are important sub-sectors of the non life segment. However, the segment as a whole faces a number of headwinds. These include the sedate pace of economic growth and downwards pressure on prices in the property and motor vehicle insurance sub-sectors.
