According to Deloitte’s recent report “Insurance Industry Outlook”, 2018 and 2019 are set to be ‘banner years’ for insurers - with firms generally set to enjoy insurance industry trends of sustained growth, rising interest rates and higher investments. As early as 2020 however, the consultancy has also flagged concerns for economic slowdown and knock-on challenges for insurers industry-wide.
