In FY 2012, the total GWP of BiH insurers totaled EUR 258 million, which is 3.5% more than in FY2011. By insurance classes, "on the life segment, the premiums growth was of about 8%, while on the general insurance segment it was of nearly 2.7%," pointed out Samir OMERHODZIC, Director, Insurance Agency of Bosnia and Herzegovina (AZOBIH) at the International Insurance Forum 2013. "Analyzing the figures, we can conclude that the upward trend continued. In Bosnia, the insurance industry has not felt the impact of the recession," underlined Mr. OMERHODZIC.

BiH, 3Q2012: stable growth, in line with the first half of the year

Despite the financial crisis, Bosnia and Hergovina's insurance market remained on the growth track followed in the previous period, increasing by 2.87% y-o-y.

BiH: property insurance loses ground, following the 17% drop in fire insurance GWP

The Bosnian insurance market recorded an overall steady evolution in 1H2012, as compared to 1H2011. Yet, if the total GWP showed only a less than 1pp change, to EUR 127.27 million by the end of June 2012, from the EUR 126.11 million figure of 2011, a closer look reveals a different situation when considering the figures for each business line. Thus, while life insurance recorded a positive change of over 7%, on the non-life insurance lines the results were less encouraging.
