Big insurers perform, low growth overall
Several major life insurers recorded significant growth in overall risk premium inflows despite low growth across the market, according to figures from Strategic Insight.
AIA (13.3 per cent), TAL (11.5 per cent) and BT/Westpac (10.1 per cent) managed to record double digit percentage growth rates in overall risk premium inflows in the year ending September 2016, Strategic Insight says.
Annual sales in the risk market rose 7.5 per cent, after staging a partial bounce back from the 23.2 per cent fall the previous year.
“Market leaders TAL (138.2 per cent) and AIA (40.6 per cent) both reported large jumps in their risk sales year-on-year again, recovering from equally large falls they suffered in the previous 12 months with volatility in the group risk market, in particular, driving all these results,” Strategic Insight said.
