On the group risk premium front, inflows experienced 0.1 per cent growth over the past year despite individual company results varying significantly.

Of the larger companies, MetLife (11.6 per cent) and AIA (5.3 per cent) recorded well above-average percentage increases in their annual group risk inflows.

However, Strategic Insight noted that individual company growth can be significantly impacted by super fund insurance mandate movements.
