Life Insurance in Russia, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018

Date: 2015-09

Russia has the world’s 19th-largest insurance industry in terms of gross written premium. The life segment grew significantly following the global financial crisis of 2008–2009. The primary reasons were an increase in public awareness with regards to life insurance products, increase in employment, and the government’s implementation of several laws to develop the insurance industry. Russia’s life insurance segment is underdeveloped when compared to Brazil, Russia, India and China (the BRIC countries). In gross written premium terms, the life segment accounted for 4.1% of the total gross written premium of Russian insurance industry in 2013. The main reasons for the segment’s relatively low share are the country’s lack of tax benefits for life insurance products and its underdeveloped private pension system. Most life insurance policies sold are bought as a mandatory requirement for people taking out a bank loan.
