Best’s Market Segment Report: AM Best Maintains Negative Outlook on Germany’s Non-Life Insurance Segment

AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#insurance–AM Best is maintaining its outlook for Germany’s non-life insurance segment at negative.

In its new Best’s Market Segment Report, “Market Segment Outlook: Germany Non-Life Insurance”, AM Best says subdued growth prospects, on an inflation-adjusted basis, continue to be a headwind for insurers in Germany. In addition, persistent claims inflation and a competitive operating environment weigh on insurers’ underwriting profitability, while natural catastrophe losses bring volatility to results.

Nonetheless, the report notes that the segment has built a good buffer in risk-adjusted capitalisation to absorb potential earnings volatility. The segment also has a balanced market composition with profitable sub-segments.
