Research and Markets: Life Insurance in Canada, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Life Insurance in Canada, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017" report to their offering.

The Canadian life insurance segment registered a review-period (2008-2012) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.3% despite a prolonged period of low interest rates, rising levels of household debt, the European debt crisis and weak economic development. Growth was partially a consequence of re-pricing and de-risking practices adopted by insurers, which eventually strengthened their capital positions and balance sheets. Growth was compounded by the strong performance of the equity market, low unemployment rates and inflation. These factors are expected to support the growth of the segment over the forecast period (2012-2017). As such, the segment is expected to increase from a value of CAD40.2 billion (US$40.2 billion) in 2012 to CAD49.0 billion (US$47.3 billion) in 2017, at a projected CAGR of 4.1%. Numerous challenges will be faced however, with persistently low interest rates over the early part of the forecast period and regulatory challenges relating to capital and solvency margins being the main issues.
