Also, he underlined that "the Russian insurance markets becomes more and more concentrated, the general expectation being that the weak companies will most probably soon abandon the insurance business."

In the global context he spoke about the large impact of the numerous nat cat events that have affected the U.S.A, Mexico as well as the European continent. "The renewal will be more challenging, most probably less soft than in the past recent years," he estimated.
