STATISTICS: SLOVAK Rep., 1H2017: motor insurance line account for 57% of non-life insurers' GWP and 80% of claims

In 1H2017, the Slovak insurance market totaled EUR 1.06 billion (11.8% more y-o-y), while the value of paid claims was of EUR 575 million, according to the preliminary financial figures provided by the National Bank of Slovakia.

More in detail, the non-life insurance field generated more than half of the total GWP (51.9%), while the life classes accounted for 48.1% of the market (EUR 513 million).

The life unit-linked products accounted for about a quarter of total life GWP (~EUR 115 million), while traditional policies and other supplementary life insurance have generated premiums of about EUR 400 million.

The non-life portfolio was dominated by the two motor insurance sub-classes which generated together 57% of total non-life insurers' business and about 80% of claims: Motor TPL (29% of non-life GWP and 40% of claims) and MoD (28% and 40%).

"The technical result continues to be positive in life insurance and reached EUR 11 million. The technical result in non-life decreased by 10% to the EUR 29 million what might be the natural compensation of significant increase which was recorded in the previous period - in the year 2016. The solvency capital ratio decreased from 229% to 209% especially in case of insurers with higher solvency ratio at the year-end 2016," representatives of the market supervisory authority told XPRIMM.
