Zambia Insurance Report Q2 2015

BMI View: In Zambia's insurance sector, strong local currency growth of around 8-10% will be held back by currency weakness that will translate into growth of around 4-5% in USD terms. Motor and property lines will continue to dominate, equating to over 40% of all premiums in the industry, and around twothirds of total non-life premiums. The industry, despite growth and strong regulation, is small even by regional standards, with per capita premiums of less than USD20.

Gross insurance premiums in 2014 reached just USD284mn, following a significant weakening of the kwacha, and will grow in 2015 by 4.8% to USD298mn, again hurt by currency weakness. This rate of growth is expected to continue through to 2019, by which point total premiums will reach USD360mn, equivalent to only USD20 per capita. In local currency terms, performance will be much better, but BMI anticipates ongoing currency weakness relative to a strong dollar throughout the next five years. The relative underdevelopment of the insurance sector, barring a significant uptick in investment, will keep growth rates below overall GDP expansion.
