This report offers uniquely-detailed insights into the distribution by banks and other lending institutions of risk life, critical illness and income protection insurance in six countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

Hence, given that the aggregate market for protection-related life insurance across the eight countries, excluding creditor cover, is worth around USD 16.7 billion, it is clear that banks and other lending institutions can intermediate a significant volume of business in this sector.

In addition to identifying the schemes for distribution of protection-related life insurance through the bancassurance channel, the research also classifies and analyses these according to the operating model used, distinguishing, for example, between captive, joint venture and external underwriters. Furthermore, it also calculates the weighted share of partnerships of the underwriters and other product providers involved, thereby illustrating not only which competitors hold which partnerships but also which competitors hold the most significant distribution deals.
