2012-09-12 04:29:18 - Life Insurance in Brazil, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016: Post Retirement Products to Record Double Digit Growth - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Brazil remains a largely untapped market with 70% of the employed population being uninsured. The growth of the Brazilian life insurance market was driven by the significant increase in sales of deferred annuity products for individuals, also known as Vida Gerador de BenefÃcios Livres (VGBL).
The Brazilian life insurance market is dominated by private banks that own and control the leading insurance companies. In 2011, bancassurance represented the largest distribution channel for life insurance and pension products. In 2011, the individual pension category was the largest in terms of written premium with a total market share of 79.7%.
The regulatory environment is expected to become more restrictive following new proposals by the SuperintendÃªncia de Seguros Privados (SUSEP), the Superintendence of Private Insurance.
SUSEP has announced plans to tighten the solvency rules for life insurance companies, and plans to increase the minimum retained capital for these companies which are currently very low.
