Russian Life Insurance Sector Analysed & Forecast by Timetric in Comprehensive Research Study Published at

14 Oct 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Russia’s life segment grew at a significant rate following the world financial crisis during 2008–2009. The major reasons were an upsurge in public awareness with respect to life insurance products, rise in employment, as well as the government’s implementation of a range of laws to drive the insurance sector’s growth. The Russian life insurance sector is not very fully developed over against that of the BRIC nations. In terms of gross written premium, the life segment comprised around 4% of the overall gross written premium of the domestic insurance industry as of 2013. The primary reasons for the relatively low share of the segment are the nation’s absence of tax advantages for life insurance products and its underdeveloped private pension system. The majority of life insurance policies are bought as an exclusive requirement for people making a bank loan.
