Versicherungsmarkt in Nahost befindet sich auf Wachstumskurs

10.03.2015 – Die Versicherer in Nordafrika und dem Mittleren Osten befinden sich weiterhin auf Wachstumskurs. Demnach gehen diese davon aus, dass die Prmämien auch im kommenden Jahr stabil oder leicht steigen werden. Dies ging aus dem 3. Mena Insurance Barometer des Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) hervor.

The QFC says:

“According to the MENA Insurance Barometer the region’s strong fundamentals remain intact,” says Shashank Srivastava, CEO and Board Member, QFC Authority. “Insurance penetration is on the rise, demographics are favourable, and the ability of most Gulf countries to withstand short-term volatility in oil pricing is strong.” The most recent surveyis based on 37 in-depth interviews with senior executives of regional and international (re)insurance companies and intermediaries, sharing their assessment of the current state and near-term prospects of the US$ 50 billion MENA insurance markets.

According to the International Monetary Fund, the region’s economy is expected to grow at an annual inflation-adjusted rate of 4.1 percent from 2014 to 2019, slightly ahead of the projected global average of 3.9 percent per annum. Although political instability prevails in countries such as Iraq, Syria or Libya, conditions in Iran and Egypt, for example, are expected to improve.

Personal lines are viewed as the key future opportunity of MENA insurance markets, due to population growth, legislation and, partially, improving rates. The prospect of additional major infrastructure and construction projects in the Gulf region ranks second. Low penetration levels are the third most frequently mentioned opportunity. (vwh/td)
