Best’s Market Segment Report: AM Best Maintains Negative Outlook on Spain’s Life Insurance Segment

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

In its new Best’s Market Segment Report, “Market Segment Outlook: Spain Life Insurance,” AM Best cites a number of factors supporting its negative outlook, including economic uncertainty, which presents a challenge to premium growth, and the need for insurers to navigate rising inflation and hikes in interest rates.

However, AM Best notes that despite the economic situation Spanish life insurers have continued to report healthy profits over recent years. Spain’s life segment has also seen a shift toward capital-light products, which AM Best views positively.
