Research and Markets: Reinsurance in Russia - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/29lvjc/reinsurance_in) has announced the addition of the "Reinsurance in Russia, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018" report to their offering.

During the review period (2009-2013), the Russian reinsurance segment underwent significant changes in terms of its regulatory structure. Paid-up capital increased from RUB120.0 million (US$3.96 million) to RUB480.0 million (US$15.8 million) in January 2012. The Russian reinsurance segment accounted for 0.7% of the global reinsurance written premium in 2013. The reinsurance segment's gross written premium rose at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of just 1.0%. The main reasons for the slow growth were the low operating efficiency of reinsurers in Russia, a lack of understanding of the benefits of reinsurance by Russian insurers, and an increase in reinsurance ceded to foreign rather than domestic reinsurers.

Key Highlights

  • Russian reinsurance accounted for 0.7% of the global reinsurance segment in 2013.
  • During the review period, the Russian reinsurance segment grew at a slow CAGR of 1.0%, due to the low operating efficiency of reinsurers, a lack of understanding of the benefits of reinsurance by Russian insurers, and an increase in reinsurance ceded to foreign rather than domestic reinsurers.
  • Leading reinsurers include Ingosstrakh, Sogaz Insurance Group, Unity Reinsurance, AlfaStrakhovanie and Transsib Re.
  • Foreign companies dominate the reinsurance segment. Although Russian reinsurers' tariffs are often lower than those of their main foreign competitors, most of Russia's outward reinsurance business goes to foreign companies.
