While Tanzania’s insurance premiums have increased over the past year, elevated competition has affected underwriting profits. Larger players may welcome an agenda of wholesale regulatory reform as a basis for more sustainable growth, but many insurers with lower levels of capitalisation face an uncertain period, as legislation is given an overhaul and more stringent requirements are established.
