Israel Insurance Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

Israel's small but dynamic and well-developed insurance sector will enjoy robust growththrough the forecast period, with demand for insurance lines supported by a strong domestic economytypified by low unemployment, rising income levels and robust consumer confidence. Positive demographictrends, including a growing retirement-age population will be an additional driver of growth, with thebiggest impact expected to be seen in the country's life and health and personal accident insurancesegments. A competitive operating environment, occupied by a small number of well-entrenched localbrands, will restrict access to the market for new entrants, with investments and partnerships with existingdomestic providers likely to provide the easiest method of access for overseas investors.
