Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2014 -- The latest results of the leading insurance companies in Mexico, both in the non-life and in the life segment, confirm that the main trends are positive. Secular trends mean that volumes are growing in most lines and sub-sectors. Premiums are also being boosted by product innovation on the part of the leading players themselves. In general, pricing is disciplined: a number of the majors emphasised how they have reduced claims and expense ratios through 2013. The positive trends should continue through the forecast period. .
Both the non-life and the life segments are seen by leading multi-national insurance companies as opportunities which are too large or too rapidly expanding to ignore. In the swifter growing non-life segment, especially, it is possible to identify long-term trends which should support the growth in premiums. These include: the general expansion in financial services; the growth in consumerism and; initiatives to reduce the numbers of uninsured motor vehicles. Rapid expansion in private health spending through the forecast period should underpin strong growth in health insurance premiums. This is an opportunity for both the non-life and the life companies that are active in Mexico.
