In addition to stable growth in developed markets, capturing booming emerging markets is the key.

Non-life premiums grow in tandem with economic growth in developed markets. However, in emerging markets, which have low levels of insurance penetration and upward trends in populations, insurance premiums show growth that exceeds economic growth. Note that increases in life premiums are greatly impacted by such factors as interest rates, market regulations, and taxation systems, so they are not necessary linked to economic growth.
