New Market Research Report: The Insurance Industry in Bermuda, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Jun 06 2013

Bermuda is one of the leading insurance centers in the world. The insurance industry is an integral part of the economy, with international business revenues accounting for more than 50% of the island's gross domestic product (GDP). A low regulatory burden, attractive tax environment and good infrastructure have been key drivers for the growth of insurance and also for the rise in the number of international companies in the island. The contraction in economic activities during the review period (2008-2012) and uncertain global market conditions had an impact on business revenues. The overall gross written premiums from the industry decreased moderately at a CAGR of 1.7% during the review period. Over the forecast period (2012-2017), the global economy is expected to improve, bringing with it favorable regulatory developments. The availability of an experienced workforce should, when combined with the low-cost advantage for running a business in the islands, drive the growth of the industry.
