The forecast given in this report is not based on a complex economic model, but is intended as a rough guide to the direction in which the market is likely to move. This forecast is based on a correlation between past market growth and growth of base drivers.
A large population makes Brazil the biggest potential insurance market in Latin America, ahead of Mexico and Argentina, but despite the rapid growth in the past three years (2004-2006), its population remains underinsured. There is considerable vertical integration between the insurers and the banks. Most of the larger banks, such as Banco Bradesco and Unibanco, offer a full range of insurance services. Insurance companies, like financial institutions, invest heavily in government securities and have little exposure to the volatile equity market.
Driven by a strong rise in purchases of life insurance, which is reflecting strengthening real incomes and increased confidence in macroeconomic stability, the Brazilian insurance market has been expanding rapidly since 2003. Overall, the market remains small, with total premiums accounting for just over 2.8% of GDP in 2006.
