LONDON – Russia’s life insurance sector accounted for more than 4% of the insurance industry’s total gross written premiums (GWP) as of 2014; it is rather underdeveloped when compared to the BRIC nations. The Russian life insurance sector posted the highest 48% CAGR during 2010–2014, however, the growth declined in 2014. Through to 2019, the segment is likely to be influenced by economic meltdown in the country, driven by the crisis in Ukraine. The individual whole life category accounted for just under 64% of the life insurance GWP in 2014. The national insurance industry underwent a range of regulatory changes over the review period such as the foreign direct investment (FDI) FDI cap in insurance was raised from 25% to 49%. Bancassurance was the dominant distribution channel in the life sector, capturing over 73% of the sector’s total commissions as of 2014.
