News correspondents got a quote from the research of the University of Málaga“The non-life insurers of 33 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries over a six-year period are analysed. A cluster analysis makes it possible to form groups of countries according to the penetration rate of non-life insurance. Several scenarios, characterized by the maturity of the market and the crisis/non-crisis situation, are studied. The results indicate that the highest level of profitability (growth) is related to scenarios with a medium (low) maturity level and periods of expansion. They also show that the lowest level of risk representative of good performance is associated with scenarios where the markets have a high level of maturity and times of crisis. We find that higher recommendable size is associated with more mature markets. The results also indicate that the use of reinsurance is linked to a period of crisis.
According to the reporters, the study concluded, “We further find that the recommended level of capitalization differs significantly across scenarios.”
