BMI View: Nicaragua's is the smallest of the insurance industries in the Central American region, withtotal gross premiums in 2016 set to reach just USD197mn, equating to insurance density of just USD32 percapita. Local currency growth has been high, but returns for international companies have been limited bycórdoba weakness which is set to continue. Demand for health insurance will be a key driver in non-lifebusiness, particularly as low-cost options are developed for low-income individuals and households. A lackof competition will, however, curtail innovation and inflate prices across much of the market, both trends tothe detriment of consumers.
