BMI View: By virtually all metrics - absolute size, penetration and density - both segments of Switzerland'sinsurance sector are extremely well developed Both are dominated by world-class Swiss and continentalEuropean companies that have strong brands, multi-channel distribution, proven capacity to innovate andaccess to low-cost capital However, we anticipate sluggish volume growth and downwards pressure onprices remain challenging for most sub-sectors of the non-life segment, while the life segment will beadversely affected by the effects of negative interest rates on investment portfolios

Key Updates And Forecasts

- Switzerland's sustained negative interest rates have cut investment returns for Swiss insurers, a situationcompounded by external factors, such as stuttering global economic growth and a tougher regulatoryenvironment, that has required firms to set aside more capital Negative interest will erode insurers'investment portfolios and potentially further them to raise life premiums to mitigate risk, a trend that willprompt consumers to look at other organised savings products

- Health insurance premiums, which account for around a third of the non-life market, are rising in linewith costs and 2016 will see average health insurance premium increases of 3% In the long-term, themarket will be influenced by an ageing population, which is likely to lead to a rise in claims and pressureto raise premiums further

- BMI has made modest downward revisions to some non-life segments, such as vehicle insurance whichwill be affected by slower growth in the national vehicle fleet as well as over-capacity in global property& casualty insurance markets
