Key Highlights
• The German life segment held the largest share of the insurance industry during the review period. • In 2014, life insurance accounted for 45.4% of the industry's overall gross written premium. • The growth of the segment was offset by a decline in the endowment insurance category - particularly traditional life insurance products. • The national retirement age in Germany will gradually increase to 67 years by 2029, and future pensioners will have reduced benefits. This is expected to drive demand for pensions over the forecast period. • Government bonds accounted for the largest share of investments made by life insurers during the review period. • To compensate for long-term liabilities arising from low interest rates and to maintain profitability, insurers increased holdings in investment funds.
