RIO DE JANEIRO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: Brazilian Insurance Dashboard 4Q14
Fitch Ratings has published its quarterly Brazilian Insurance Dashboard.
Key items that are covered in this report include premium growth trends and outlook, sector profitability, and capitalization. Fitch expects premium growth to remain relatively subdued in 2015. Demand for insurance is likely come under pressure from meager economic growth, higher inflation, a potential increase in unemployment, and a reduction in the availability of credit and government spending. However, sector profitability should remain broadly stable aided by solid financial income. Sector leverage ratios, which have trended up since 2010, should stabilize as a result of lower paced premium growth.
