The comments of the expert
From the point of view of forecasts and market expectations – nothing unexpected happened. The accrued premium increased by 20%, the main driver still remains insurance (first of all, credit insurance, then accumulative and investment life insurance). However, the level of payments grew by 2 pp. Compared to the past Locking-pandemic 2020, when the frequency of consignments on auto insurance and VMI decreased.
Against the background of the rapid growth of the insurance premium and the growth of unprofitability, as well as changes in the approach to assess the financial condition of the company, the profit decreased by 18%. There is a risk of leaving the players market who will not cope with the implementation of the Direction No. 710-P “On individual requirements for the financial sustainability and solvency of insurers.” Recently, the Bank of Russia withdrew the license of the company ASCO-Insurance. There is a feeling that this is not the last decision regarding the market participants from the Central Bank.
The main increase in the insurance market is due to the banking channel. Sales of certificates through insurance intermediaries (brokers and agents) are growing enough, it shows the good dynamics of online (Internet) the direction of insurance. According to our assessment, the online insurance market in 2021 will exceed 100 billion rubles. The further growth in the life insurance market will depend on the implementation of important initiatives, such as a draft change in the direction of the Bank of Russia 5055-y, as well as changes in loan insurance and the introduction of a new direction – equity life insurance.
