Ghana Insurance Report Q4 2017

BMI View: The outlook for Ghana's insurance markets is robust, especially since they proved resilient tothe economic downturn of 2014-16. A recovery of economic growth, which our Country Risk team forecastswill exceed 6% in both 2017 and 2018, will help drive continued growth in premiums in both real terms andUSD terms, in a country where the insurance market is relatively underdeveloped compared to the widereconomy. Both the life and non-life sectors will experience average annual growth that reaches doubledigits in percentage terms for both currency classes over the period 2017 to 2021.
