Research and Markets: 2020 Foresight Report: Trends in Life Insurance Underwriting

Business Wire


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "2020 Foresight Report: Trends in Life Insurance Underwriting" report to their offering.

The life insurance segment is characterized by underwriting losses in some developed nations, and underwriting profits in important emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil and Russia. The life insurance segments in developed nations will record a rise in premium rates due to gradual recovery in their economies, meaning that life insurers will need to protect their margins. In the case of emerging economies, the life segment is moving towards a situation that is neither hard nor soft, due to factors such as the highly under-penetrated markets in these countries, increased competition among life insurers and rising disposable incomes. Globally, the life segment is in a state of flux due to far-reaching regulations such as Solvency II in Europe. These regulations essentially link the amount of capital held by life insurers with the risks they underwrite and the investments they make.
