STATISTICS: MOLDOVA, 1H2018: the market's growth in euro is two times higher than in local currency
Paid claims growth rate left premiums far behind and, if compared to the first half year of 2017, amounted to 20.42%. Non-life sector, dominating in the market (93.63% of total GWP), increased by 6.08%, while its paid claims jumped almost by 24%. As usually the biggest part of the sector's paid claims was made by motor insurance classes. However, in terms of GWP growth the drivers of non-life sector were health insurance (+33.40%) and property insurance (+30.58%). Some of the sector's classes produced premiums less than a year ago. Thus, premiums decreased in accidents insurance and financial loss insurance, while MTPL premiums remained almost unchanged (very slight decrease by 0.2%).
Life sector has a rather small market share in GWP (6.37%), but it demonstrates much more dynamic premiums' growth (+11.15%) and paid claims decreased almost by half if compared to the same period a year ago.

GENERAL ASIGURARI, which in the first quarter managed to take the 4th place in the marker premiums, keeps growing. For the first half year the insurer generated premiums by almost 65% more than a year ago, however, at that the insurer's rapid growth affected its paid claims situation as well.
