Belgium Insurance Report Q3 2015

BMI View: We have a negative short-term outlook for Belgium's life and non-life insurance segments, butexpect recovery in both from 2017 onwards. As such, economic pressures will initially weigh on insurers'ability to increase their written premiums; however, improvements in households' disposable incomes willtranslate into greater demand for both life and non-life insurance. We forecast particularly rapid growth inhealth insurance, due Belgium's ageing population paired with consequently rising private healthcareexpenses. Overall, we underscore long-term investment opportunities in Belgium's insurance sector.

Belgium's life and non-life insurance segments are highly developed. Insurance providers in both segmentsare expected to experience downwards pressure on their written premiums in the short-term, but willexperience ongoing growth in the medium to long-term. The most recent financial results reported by themajor players in both segments, as well as their forward guidance, confirm this outlook, The factors whichunderpin this trend are discussed subsequently.
