The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has pledged to provide technical support for the supervision of banks and insurance companies in Montenegro, the country's central bank, CBCG, said on Monday.
The Montenegrin market reported a 4.2% y-o-y growth in FY2016 GWP, to EUR 80.1 million, according to the preliminary figures published on the ISA's web-site. The non-life insurance segment had the largest contribution to the aggregate figure, reporting GWP of EUR 66.5 million (83% of total GWP), while the life sector accounted for the remaining 17%, or EUR 13.7 million.
Grawe has confirmed for the local financial press the acquisition of Merkur Insurance Podgorica, the Austrian Merkur International Holding 100% owned subsidiary from Montenegro, in a deal worth EUR 1.39 million.
In 3Q2016, the Montenegrin insurance market totaled almost EUR 60 million, a 3.5% increase y-o-y, as the Insurance Supervision Agency has reported. Compared with September 2015, non-life insurance premium was up by 3.3% (to EUR 50.1 million), while the life insurance GWP grew by 4.2% (to EUR 9.2 million).
Montenegro insurers' GWP increased by 4.50% y-o-y to EUR 38.65 million in the first half of the year, according to the figures published by the Insurance Supervision Agency. The aggregate value of gross claims paid was EUR 14.73 million, 1.60% more y-o-y.
Montenegro's insurers have reported a decreasing consolidated GWP amount, by 1.84% lower y-o-y, mostly pushed down by the significantly decrasing property insurance business.
Austrian insurance group UNIQA said on Thursday its pre-tax loss from
operations in Montenegro widened to 600,000 euro in 2015 from
300,000 euro a year earlier.
The insurance market of Montenegro saw a 6.24% y-o-y growth in GWP, to EUR 76.9 million. The non-life insurance segment had the largest contribution to the market growth, reporting GWP of EUR 64 million, 6.93% up y-o-y. Non-life insurance lines account for 83.2% of the total GWP.
Montenegrin insurer Lovcen Osiguranje, a unit of Slovenia's Triglav
Group, said its gross written premiums increased 9% to 22.4 million euro
in the first nine months of 2015.
Montenegrin insurance companies reported aggregate GWP of EUR 57.3 million during January-September 2015, 6.3% more y-o-y, according to the preliminary figures published on the country's Insurance Supervision Agency website. Non-life insurance premiums totaled EUR 48.5 million, up by 6.9% on the year, while the life insurance segment generated premiums of EUR 8.8 million, 4.0% more y-o-y.
Judging by the first six months results, it seems that the Montenegrin insurance market is recovering in 2015, with improved dynamics on almost all business lines. Thus, after ending 2014 with a drop in GWP, in 1H2015 the overall premium volume went up by 4.8% y-o-y, to almost EUR 37 million.
Montenegrin non-life insurer UNIQA Nezivotno Osiguranje raised its
capital to 8.7 million euro through the issue of new shares, while life
insurer UNIQA Zivotno Osiguranje hiked its capital to 4.03 million euro,
the Podgorica bourse said.
The 11 Montenegrin insurers activating on the market reported aggregate gross written premiums of EUR 17.06 million for the January-March 2015 period, up from EUR 15.63 million in 1Q2014, the figures published by the country's Insurance Supervision Agency indicated.
