Research and Markets: Reinsurance in Singapore, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2gnwz2/reinsurance_in) has announced the addition of the "Reinsurance in Singapore, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016" report to their offering.

The Singaporean insurance industry registered robust growth during the review period, due to the growth in offshore business and improved macro- and micro economic fundamentals in Asia Pacific countries. The high number of natural disasters that occurred in Asia Pacific countries during the review period, including floods in Australia and Thailand, earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan, and a tsunami in Japan, forced insurers in these countries to share a greater proportion of their revenues with reinsurance companies in order to avoid substantial losses from similar events in the future. This trend generated significant business opportunities for reinsurance companies operating in Singapore.
