STATISTICS: CROATIA, FY 2016: GWP increase close to nil

The aggregate GWP by Croatian insurers amounted to HRK 8.76 billion (EUR 1.15 billion) at the end of December 2016, up by 0.42% y-o-y, according to the Croatian Insurance Bureau. Non-life GWP increased by 0.91% to HRK 5.84 billion, while the life insurance segment went down by 0.55%, to HRK 2.92 billion. The aggregate value of paid claims was HRK 4.75 billion, or 3.67% more y-o-y.

Despite a 9.49% y-o-y decrease in GWP, the traditional life insurance policies dominate the life portfolio (HRK 2.24 billion) followed by unit-linked products (HRK 485 million), which in turn have experienced a doubling of the volume of underwritings.
