Insurance premium rose by almost 40% be¬tween 2013 and 2017 on the back of econom¬ic expansion, and while the main actors have remained the same, the last few years have seen an influx of foreign and local players to the market. Now, new regulations – particularly min¬imum capital requirements – that will begin to be enforced in 2019 are expected to significantly change the sec¬tor’s landscape, leading to market consolidation and improved services in a country where in¬surance penetration is at less than 2% of GDP. This will provide a strategic opportunity for insurers to both increase the confidence of consumers in products and give a much-needed boost to insurance inclusion.
