Here we review recent GC Capital Ideas stories that have referenced (re)insurers doing business in emerging markets.
Considerations for Market Entry
For (re)insurers considering entry into an emerging market, several developments should be monitored in the regions under consideration. Is there a growing need for infrastructure and commercial/industrial insurance for transportation, utilities and agribusiness industries? Is there a prospect for deepening insurance penetration, especially in personal lines, as the population’s disposable income grows? Are income levels growing, allowing the purchase of “middle class” lifestyle products that require insurance? How is longevity increasing and creating new/additional insurance needs?
As (re)insurers are challenged to deliver healthy, accretive returns in maturing and increasingly competitive markets, emerging markets present growth opportunities that may not be found in the United States or Europe. Regulatory challenges, tightening reserve levels and capital requirements, coupled with volatile global economies and a low interest rate environment, are forcing companies to seek non-traditional or emerging growth strategies.

The January 1, 2012, renewals saw a shift in industry behavior as both insurers and reinsurers implemented more sophisticated, customized approaches to risk assessment and mitigation, according to Guy Carpenter. In its 2012 global reinsurance outlook, Catastrophes, Cold Spots and Capital: Navigating for Success in a Transitioning Market, Guy Carpenter reported that reinsurers were in a position to undertake a major review of pricing and underwriting going into the renewal season. This led to significant market fragmentation and increased market volatility at January 1.
