BMI View: Namibia's insurance sector is relatively well developed (in places), compared with the widersub-Saharan African market, with penetration of life insurance in particular being higher than it is in manyneighbouring countries. The non-life sector is less developed and we see strong growth potential in thepersonal accident and motor vehicle insurance segments. While Namibia's population is small, manyhouseholds have never purchased insurance coverage and the introduction of new distribution and productinnovation strategies should allow investors to leverage a fairly robust macroeconomic and consumerspending environment over the next few years.

Latest Updates and Developments:

- We have revised a number of our USD-denominated insurance premiums forecasts downwards for thisquarter following revisions to our currency market outlook. We now forecast life premiums to grow by arelatively moderate 1.2% y-o-y over the 2015-2019 period, while non-life premiums will grow at a morerobust 8.6% a year through the period.

- We maintain our view that the motor vehicle and personal accident insurance segments will remain thekey source of growth within the wider non-life segment over the next few years as insurers usedistribution and product innovation strategies to target new user groups, including lower incomecustomers. Both markets will be worth around USD155mn by 2019.
