This PowerPoint report explores the economic perspectives on the future of reinsurance. In context of the global economy, the presentation discusses important consequences for insurer and reinsurer growth opportunities. Emerging economies (led by China at 6.2 percent and India at 7.4 percent) are expected to grow by 4.6 percent overall in 2017. The presentation notes that developing economies are severely underinsured and questions whether an acceleration of GDP growth will translate into significant premium growth. Some near-term issues discussed in the PowerPoint are: the effects of the near-stagnation of the major European economies, a possible return to tariffs or trade wars, and the lingering concern over inflation.
