3rd Africa Insurance Barometer launched

Wednesday 09.05.2018 // Newsletter

On Monday, 7 May, Dr. Schanz, Alms & Company published on behalf of the African Insurance Organisation the 3rd Africa Insurance Barometer. According to the survey, the insurance executives polled for this year’s survey are slightly more enthusiastic about the current state and outlook for their industry than in the preceding two editions. They expect that the gradual recovery of the continent’s economy from its deep recession in 2015 and 2016 will positively impact on insurers’ rates and earnings and ease the pressure from excess capacity and fierce competition.

Andreas Bollmann presented the findings of the Africa Insurance Barometer 2018 at the 45th Conference & General Assembly of the African Insurance Organisation (AIO) in Accra, Ghana. At the assembly which took place from May 7 – 9, the close to 1’000 delegates operating on the continent discussed the current trends and developments shaping the industry’s outlook in Africa.

On Tuesday 8 May, Henner Alms and Andreas Bollmann were invited by the AIO Executive Committee to share the findings related to insurance regulation and supervision from the 2016, 2017 and 2018 Africa Insurance Barometer editions with a group of African Insurance Regulators at a breakfast meeting.
