    In terms of devastation wreaked, there were a number of large-scale disasters across the world in 2016, including earthquakes in Japan, Ecuador, Tanzania, Italy and New Zealand. There were also a number of severe floods in the US and across Europe and
    Asia, and a record high number of weather events in the US. The strongest was Hurricane Matthew, which became the first Category 5 storm to form over the North Atlantic since 2007, and which caused the largest loss of life – more than 700 victims, mostly in Haiti – of a single event in the year. Another expansive, and expensive, disaster was the wildfire that spread through Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada from May to July.

Consolidation, evolving solvency regulation and the spread of enterprise risk management are driving a trend of centralized re/insurance buying by insurance companies and large corporations, tailored to enable growth and steer group-wide
    risk appetite across all types of risks.

    In spite of a challenging environment in 2015 with moderate global economic growth of 2.5%, direct premiums written grew 3.8% in real terms, up from 3.5% growth in 2014. However, in nominal US dollar (USD) terms, global premiums were down by 4.2%, due to currency depreciation against the USD, particularly in the advanced markets. There was a slight slowdown in the life sector in 2015, with global premium growth dipping to 4.0% from 4.3%, due to weaker performance in the advanced markets. On the non-life side, strong growth in the advanced markets of Asia, and improvement in North America and Western Europe, contributed to a 3.6% increase in global premiums, up from 2.4% growth in 2014.The sigma includes a special chapter on the slowdown in global trade in recent years, and its possible impact on the insurance sector.

It provides an outlook for premium growth and an overview of the economic fundamentals which will lead to increased demand for insurance in these countries. The report also looks at the individual features of each market, covering topics such as impending regulatory changes and the influence of external factors such as regional trade agreements.

    Underinsurance of property risks1 is a global challenge. Much of the protection gap is due to uninsured global natural catastrophe risk, which has been rising steadily over the past 40 years. Swiss Re’s sigma data show that total economic losses from natural disasters have averaged around USD 180 billion annually in the last decade,
    with 70% (USD 127 billion, or USD 1.3 trillion in total over the 10 years) of that uninsured. Earthquakes, floods and windstorms are the main perils, particularly in areas of high population and property value concentrations.

    Mergers and acquisitions (M & A) tend to come in waves. After declining sharply in the wake of the financial crisis, overall M & A activity in the insurance sector has been relatively low in recent years and has only just started to increase. Surveys also suggest sentiment towards M & A is turning as insurers look for ways to deploy excess capital, boost or diversify revenue growth, build scale and ultimately bolster profitability in the face of ongoing economic headwinds.
