Colombia Insurance Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Recent developments in Colombia's insurance sector confirm that all the positive trends that wehave identified in previous reports. Solid economic growth continues to underpin the expansion ofpremiums in the non-life segment. Double digit growth (in local currency terms) in the life segment reflectsthe continuing emergence of life insurance as a key conduit for organised savings in the country. Multinationalcompanies see Colombia as a very attractive market opportunity in global terms and have beenincreasing the capital committed.

As was the case in 2014, the development of premiums in USD terms will be constrained by the weaknessof the local currency over the coming year. In local currency terms, premium growth has been in high singledigits in the non-life segment and in low double digits in the life segment. Both segments have benefitedfrom the steady growth of the economy. However, non-life penetration (premiums as a percentage of GDP)have not been growing. This is one indication of fairly intense competition. Another is the increase incommissions paid to brokers, a problem identified by trade association Fasecolda. In its recent (December2014) purchase of bulk covers for the next four years, the government paid less than it had expected to do.

Fortunately, the non-life insurers have been taking steps to control claims costs. One reflection of this hasbeen the decline in the relative importance of motor vehicle insurance claims.
