Luxembourg Insurance Report Q1 2016

Luxembourg Insurance Report Q1 2016

BMI View: The medium to long-term outlook for Luxembourg's insurance market remains largely positive.Both the life and non-life sector, following a contraction in 2015, are expected to record solid growth ofaround 5-6% annually from 2016 until the end of the forecast period in 2019. Non-life insurance is lessdeveloped than the more established life sector and, due to a several factors including declining vehiclefleets and a stagnant property market we expect life insurance to outperform the smaller non-life line.

The insurance market, particularly the life sector, is highly competitive and fragmented which does createbarriers for new entrants and moving forward we would expect to see some market consolidation, withsmaller groups losing out to international conglomerates.

Key Updates And Forecasts

Luxembourg reportedly plans to implement a tax on registered cars - the 3% tax on liability insurancewill fund the Duchy's emergency services.
