FIAR is writing insurance history and trends for 11 years by now

Like a cinematographic production where the strong character of a leading actor reshapes the original script with some new colors and shades, the 11 years long way got through by the Romanian insurance market, exponentially extended by the consistent presence of the top companies, wraps around itself the purl of another successful story: FIAR - The International Insurance-Reinsurance Forum, reaching its 11th Edition opening next week.
And because this moment asks for a parallel between these two histories, we will try to find out how come and especially how much have the first ten Editions of FIAR influenced the growth of the insurance market in Romania.
Taking as a start point year 1997, seven years later from the insurance privatization, the 44 insurance companies active then were reporting an underwriting volume of EUR 0.16 billion.

Within a ten years period, the national insurance market grew almost 18 times, reaching an underwriting volume of EUR 2.15 billion according to preliminary data for 2007.
2008 will bring, as estimated by the specialist in the market, gross written premiums of EUR 2.7 billion, as well as the first insurance product alone, namely motor hull, to outrun the EUR 1 billion threshold.
So, the non-life insurance will continue to grow in 2008 with high rates, of nearly 25%, the non-life share remaining thus stable around 80% of the insurance market. The perspectives are also favorable for life insurance, with a 25% growth estimated for 2008, in the context of rising populations' education level towards insurance and also as follows the private pension reform.
Meanwhile, on a medium to long term, the Insurance Supervisory Commission expects the local insurance market to grow as much as to EUR 7.5 billion GWP in a further ten years period.

Therefore, gliding away among the actors that have decisively left their mark upon the Romanian insurance market development, FIAR began its incursion with only 70 attendees from six countries.
Here that 2008 Edition of FIAR is waiting over 600 participants from 33 countries, on a local market background totally changed by the M&A rally in 2007 and the beginning of 2008. Thus, along with the finishing stroke of VIENNA Insurance Group, that bought all Central and Eastern European insurance operations of ERSTE and with French GROUPAMA taking over ASIBAN in April, "la creme de la creme" of the Romanian market is beginning a new age in the hands of the biggest European insurance groups.

As this battles' end is somewhere beyond the Romanian border, the recently internationalized local market has nothing left to do than follow its estimated favorable development trend, strongly sustained by the more complex and specialized works of FIAR, as a key remote of the new partnerships, strategies, "road-maps" and trends of European insurance and reinsurance.

 INTERVIEW

 

Interview with Mr. Andreas GROSSE
Market Coordinator Romania
MUNICH Re

XPRIMM: Do you think the reinsurance market is going to turn soft as estimations for 2008 indicate a drop in reinsurance rates?
Andreas GROSSE:
In the past renewal season we have seen a slight drop in reinsurance prices in the Romanian market, especially in some property reinsurance treaties. This can partially be explained by the fact that reinsurers increasingly seek to find an entry into the Romanian insurance market. We at MUNICH Re are only prepared to accept business at risk adequate terms and conditions. We focus on profitable business across all lines and are prepared to give up market share if necessary.

XPRIMM: How do see the major development of the re/-insurance markets in CEE and CIS region?
A.G.:
Whereas in motor business we have seen double-digit growth in the last three years, we consider that the Romanian market's future growth perspectives will come from property and engineering lines of business. If and when the NAT CAT Pool actually becomes a reality, this will certainly have a positive impact on insurance penetration in property, and also to some extent on reinsurance demand. As to the planned infrastructure projects, in part financed by the European Union, this is where the tremendous future potential lies.

XPRIMM: Taking into consideration the opportunities, what are the plans MUNICH Re made for this region in 2008?
A.G.:
The recent takeovers by large insurance groups / companies mean that a large part of the Romanian non-life market is now in the hands of foreign players. These players have a much lower need for reinsurance coverage than smaller local companies, mainly centered on property cat covers and accumulation XL covers in motor business.

XPRIMM: What are the major opportunities and threats of the Romanian insurance market, one year after joining EU?
A.G.:
The above-mentioned changes in market structure will in our view accelerate much-needed developments in the Romanian insurance market regarding the introduction of deductibles for motor hull business. There may also be necessary progress in relation to the bonus-malus system. It works on the basis that all companies in the insurance market exchange information on any insured's historical loss experience when the policyholder is looking for alternative quotations in the marketplace. In this way, fairer pricing can be achieved. Ultimately, technical risk analysis will become standard market practice in motor underwriting.

XPRIMM: What is the MUNICH Re's strategy in Romania in 2008?
A.G.:
We support the creation of a NAT CAT Pool in the Romanian insurance market since it represents a state-of-the-art insurance solution to protect Romania and its insurance industry against the risks of earthquake and flooding. It is also a major business opportunity for MUNICH Re. After final approval from the legislature, we are looking forward to in-depth talks with all parties involved in respect of all pool aspects.

XPRIMM: What are your expectations regarding the reinsurance demand in Romania for this year and for which lines of business do you think this demand would increase?
A.G.:
At Munich Re, we see an increasing demand for risk management services due to the upcoming new Solvency II regime in the European Union. MUNICH Re offers a variety of services - from pure and plain analysis of consequences for the market to coaching and software solutions, i.e. www.pillarone.org. This is an open-source initiative sponsored by Munich Re to provide all participating clients with the required modeling tools to develop their own internal models.

XPRIMM: Thank you!

BENFIELD launched an earthquake loss model in Kazakhstan
BENFIELD Group, one of the world's leading independent reinsurance and risk intermediary brokers, announced the launch of a fully probabilistic earthquake loss model for Kazakhstan, Business Insurance reported on Tuesday.
GAPQuake Kazakhstan, developed by the BENFIELD ReMetrics Natural Hazards team in Prague, Czech Republic, and London, is the latest addition to the firm's regional modeling tools.
The tools, under the GAP (Geographical Analysis Project) brand, helps customers to better quantify the risk to their insured portfolios from specific natural perils.
"The model will help our customers obtain a better understanding of the earthquake exposures, which are part of their Kazakhstan property insurance portfolios and enable them to optimize their catastrophe reinsurance buying", Bruce SELBY BENNETT, head of the Central & Eastern Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States team at BENFIELD, said.
The model uses historical data provided by Kazakhstan scientific institutions, and recently published scientific papers and maps to assess accumulation losses, and estimate the technical price of different reinsurance structures.
Kazakhstan is part of the most seismically active zones in Central Asia. Several strong earthquakes have occurred in Kazakhstan during the last two hundred years, four of which had magnitudes ranging from 7 to 8.5. The country's largest industrial centers, Almaty, Taraz and Shymkent, are all situated in regions with a high level of seismic activity.

BNR raises key interest to 9.75%
The board of the National Bank of Romania (BNR) raised the monetary policy interest rate by 0.25 per cent, to 9.75%, and kept the current level of compulsory minimum reserves, reads a news release issued by BNR.
The central bank undertakes to work to handle cash flows in the monetary market, via market operations, reads the respective news release.
The BNR decisions were prompted by the inflation increase, which was primarily fuelled by the rise in payroll costs and in foodstuff prices. The annual inflation rate reached 8.6 per cent in March, a two-year high.
The monetary policy interest rate is a ceiling of interest rates for which BNR attracts one-month deposits from the inter-banking monetary market. As a result, the rise in the key interest affects the costs of refinancing in the inter-banking market. Interest rates charged in the Romanian monetary market are strongly related to the key interest, and any increase in the latter will reflect on the interests for the products offered by commercial banks.
