STATISTICS: ROMANIA, 3Q2016: Double digit GWP growth supported by the raising MTPL tariffs

The Romanian insurance market ended the first three quarters of 2016 with GWP amounting to EUR 1.53 billion, 10.6% up y-o-y, supported by the significant increase in the MTPL prices recorded in the first part of the year.

Recording a lower than average growth rate, life insurance business' weight in the market portfolio went down to 17%. GWP for life insurance amounted to EUR 261.3 million, 1.3% up y-o-y.

On the non-life side, GWP went up by 12.7% y-o-y, to EUR 1.27 billion, driven by the 33% increase in GWP recorded by the MTPL insurance line. Raising insurance tariffs, especially on the corporate segment, was the main growth factor.
