CROATIA: Timid signs of the GWP falling trend slowdown
The Croatian insurance market showed an y-o-y almost steady status by the end of 3Q2011, in nominal terms and the local currency. However, the 2011 GWP figures are 1.19% lower than 12 months ago, by the end of September 2010, coming down under the HRK 7 billion threshold. Both in real terms, considering the y-o-y 2.6% inflation rate registered, or calculated in European currency, the market turnover went down by about 3.8 percentage points, to EUR 932.33 million. Compared to the half year results, one could observe a slight flattening trend of the downward curve.
