2014-02-24 20:56:01 - The Insurance Industry in Burundi, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017 - a new market research report on

Burundi has a relatively small, undeveloped financial sector that is dominated by banking. The insurance sector is also small and largely under developed, especially when compared with peer countries in the Sub-Saharan region. Private and partially government-owned insurance companies operate in the country. The sector is regulated by the Insurance Regulation and Control Agency, which falls under the Ministry of Finance. Six commercial banks and two insurance companies share the local market which is not fully occupied.

The insurance industry is expected to play an important role in the development of the financial sector by intermediating risks and making long-term resources available, but its performance is modest. The sector is outmoded and has a limited product range concentrated on mandatory motor



insurance products. The financial health and solvency of companies fall below regulatory requirements and international standards. Arrears in premiums are also a problem.

• The non-life insurance segment accounted for the largest proportion of the total insurance written premium value in 2012.
