Synopsis
Timetrics Insight Report: Economic Liberalization in Latin America - How is it Affecting Insurance? analyzes the growth of insurance in Latin America.

Latin America is a lucrative region for global insurers facing sluggish growth and the rise of technology in larger developed markets. The regions low insurance penetration and capacity for strong growth in income per capita are key assets for insurers.

Although political and economic conditions vary, overall the region has a bright outlook. A combination of rising incomes, rising penetration and large offshore energy-related projects will bolster demand for personal and commercial non-life products.

With Brazil accounting for around half the regions insurance market, its prospects will heavily skew expectations for the region. Against this backdrop, insurers will accelerate digital transformation to drive efficiency, improve profitability and increase penetration. Regulatory reform in the areas of capital adequacy, cyber-risk and insurtech is expected to widen the insurance industry in this region.

The report also analyzes the regional developments in insurance and regulations. It also focuses on the current scenario of foreign ownership in each of the Latin American region and the emergence of risk-based capital framework in the region.

Key highlights
Despite the economic downturn after 2012 in Latin America, insurers have still been able to maintain marginal profitability and are expected to grow further as the downturn subsides.

As Brazil emerges from a severe recession it is expected to reap the benefits of structural reforms implemented from 2015.

The enforcement of Solvency II in Europe has led to moves worldwide to adopt similar risk-based capital regimes.

A lack of historical data from a significantly large data sample makes it difficult for underwriters and actuaries to develop statistical models in determining kidnap and ransom policy prices.

Regulatory reforms in the region, such as setting a new insurance compliance agenda and bolstering capital adequacy requirements, will increase the industrys long-term financial stability, so it is more capable of insuring complex and diversified risk, and less reliant on reinsurance and retrocessions.

Agricultural insurance, by contrast, remains relatively undeveloped, with much of the farming population unprotected and underserved by traditional markets. The regions agricultural insurance penetration rate is just 0.03%, as compared to over 0.06% for North America.
