The insurance sector plays a key role in the economic development of countries:

  • Insurance helps protect individuals and enterprises against certain risks, thus reducing their financial vulnerability.  In developing countries individuals are more exposed to certain risks: flooding, loss of harvest, illness, early death.
  • It contributes to the development of private savings (life insurance) which is fundamental in economies where social security is either non-existent or weak and where families have to rely on savings to meet emergency needs.
  • Insurance is often a prerequisite for obtaining investment credit (personal insurance, assets insurance, etc.).
  • Insurance companies invest their ample funds in local economies and are often the largest local investors.
