Assekuranz Gobal 2000 : Ein weiteres Boomjahr für die Lebensversicherung, Rückkehr zu Normalwachstum in der Nichtlebenversicherung
In 2000 insurance companies wrote USD 2 444 billion in premiums worldwide, translating into a 6.6% increase in premiums over 1999 when adjusted for inflation. Booming life insurance and first signs of a recovery in non-life insurance were the drivers of this growth. Life insurance benefited as a result of the shift from public to private pension provision. Non-life insurance reported premium increases, but was adversely affected by low prices as a result of premium rate erosion in previous years.
