STATISTICS: ROMANIA, 3Q2018: the almost 7% decrease on the MTPL line hardly offset by increasing business on othe non-life classes

19 December 2018 — Daniela GHETU
Romanian insurers ended the first three quarters of 2018 with GWP worth EUR 1.6 billion, 0.7% up y-o-y, while paid claims have increased by 13.1%, to EUR 918 million. Given the national currency's depreciation against Euro, the results denominated in RON show a better dynamics.

GWP for life insurance went up overall by 2.5%, to EUR 340.7 million, resulting from the conbined effect of the 9.26% GWP increase for the "annuities and supplementary insurance" class and the 18% fall in the premiums written for Unit-Linked products.

The non-life insurance segment saw a rather stagnant evolution in 3Q, as the 6.85% decrease in the MTPL GWP was hard to offset by the GWP increases seen on other lines of business. Among the classes with the best positive evolution, Motor Hull insurance placed the best performance, with GWP increasing by 8.22%, to EUR 327.34.

In market hierarchi terms, there was a single significant change - EUROINS currently ranking 6th, down from the third position in 3Q2017. Consequently, the Top 3 composition is now the following: CITY Insurance ranks first (13.7% market share), closely followed by ALLIANZ-TIRIAC (13.26%) and OMNIASIG-VIG (11.05%).
