State of the Italian Insurance Market: COVID-19, Outlooks, Reinsurance Trends and Sovereign v Country Risk Impact on Ratings

Recorded on July 2, 2020

 How does AM Best, the Credit Rating Agency specialized in the insurance and reinsurance sector, view the development of the Italian insurance industry? How does COVID-19 affect the outlook of the industry, given its long-term trends?

The Italian economy is forecast to experience a severe contraction in 2020 as a result of the measures put in place by its government to contain the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This would likely have a negative impact on premium levels in the non-life insurance segment. As for the life segment, earnings will be affected by volatility in financial markets and the potential for further asset devaluations.

In this webinar, senior insurance credit rating analysts will examine the impact of COVID-19 on the global (re)insurance sector worldwide, rating methodology incorporating country risk rather than based on sovereign risk considerations, as well as trends and challenges most pertinent to the Italian market.
