Executive Summary:

The insurance sector. 2017 was a good year for insurers operating in Poland. Premium written in non-life insurance surged by 18% YoY to nearly PLN 37.8 billion fueled primarily by car insurance and benefiting from both higher tariffs and increasing number of insured cars. Also financial risks, health-related and property insurance sustained fast growth. By contrast, a remarkable reversal took place in the life insurance segment. After multiple years of declines, life insurance premium rebounded and started to grow again. This was possible thanks to much higher sales of unit-linked insurance - a result of multiple factors, including stronger equity markets and low interest rates at banks. Overall life insurance premium advanced by 3 %YoY and reached PLN 24.6 billion in 2017.

Encouraged by improving outlook, consolidation trends in the insurance sector intensified in H1 2018. Vienna Insurance Group (VIG), known for its appetite for acquisitions managed to acquire assets of specialized insurer Concordia. Moreover, VIG via its subsidiary - Interrisk - secured a majority stake in the largest mutual insurer TUW. At the same time, Generali agreed to acquire business of Gothaer in Poland and Unum took over Pramerica Zycie business from the US-based Prudential Financial.
