Insurance & Risk Management OVERVIEW


     Insurance and risk management make up an immense global industry.
     According to a survey conducted by a leading global insurance firm, Swiss Re, worldwide insurance premiums totaled $4.55 trillion in 2015 (the latest data available), down from $4.78 trillion in 2014.
     This was equal to about 6.2% of global GDP.
     Global life insurance premiums were $2.53 trillion during 2015, while all other types of insurance totaled $2.02 trillion.
    In America alone, the insurance business employed about 2.6 million people in 2016.
     Gross life insurance premiums in the U.S.
    totaled $815.0 billion during 2015 (a small increase), per the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), while property and casualty premiums totaled $588.6 billion (up substantially from $569.3 billion the previous year.)  A large number of companies underwrite insurance in America, but the industry is dominated by a handful of major players.
     Health insurance premiums paid in the U.S.
    during 2015 totaled $589.0 billion (up from $533.0 billion the previous year, and much higher than the $411.1 billion posted in 2007), according to the NAIC.
    Premiums on a per capita basis remain very low in much of the world, pointing to excellent long-term opportunity for expansion of sales of insurance products of all types, including annuities.
     It would be hard to overstate the importance of developing nations, such as China, India, Brazil and Indonesia, to the future growth of the insurance industry.
