Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2015 -- The expansion of the Turkish insurance sector in USD terms will be hampered, both in 2015 and through the forecast period as a whole, by the general weakness of the TRY. The general prospects for the non-life segment are favourable. Motor vehicle insurers should benefit from the rise in the number of cars on Turkey ' s roads and from coverage of previously uninsured vehicles.

In the life segment, high levels of inflation have limited the opportunities for growth as households have been discouraged from entering into insurance contracts. Accounting for nearly 90% of all activities, the non-life segment is the largest. Turkey is viewed as a strategic market opportunity by the world's leading multinational insurers.

Many of these have entered the market through constructive partnerships with leading Turkish groups. Ageas' strategic alliance with Aksigorta is one example of this; the union between Allianz and the Koc group, another.
