Insurance rates have continued to decline for the 15th straight quarter, new research from Marsh has found. However, declines have moderated for the first time since 2012.
In the Asian region, composite insurance rate decrease was, on average, more moderate than the global rate of decline in the fourth quarter of 2016 as property insurance rates in the region also declined less than the broader global rate, the report found.
The new Marsh Global Insurance Market Index for Q4 found that while rates had declined, 2016 marked the first year in which the average rate decline of global insurance rates had moderated since the inception of the report in 2012.
