Non-Life Insurance in Sweden, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2019

The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, or Finansinspektionen (FI), operates under the Ministry of Finance, and is responsible for supervising insurers. Following a merger between the Private Insurance Supervisory Service and the Bank Inspection Board in 1991, the FI took over responsibility for insurance supervision. The FI is responsible for maintaining financial stability, regulating market behavior, combating illegal practices and protecting consumer interests. Insurance and reinsurance companies are obliged to provide information about their financial status to the FI, which can, at any time, conduct on-site inspections of insurers’ operations.

Non-life insurance was the second-largest segment of the Swedish insurance industry in 2014, accounting for 25.3% of the industry’s direct written premium. The non-life gross written premium rose from SEK83.9 billion (US$11.6 billion) in 2010 to SEK93.9 billion (US$13.7 billion) in 2014, at a review period (2010 to 2014) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.9%. This can be attributed to rises in construction activity and vehicle sales. The non-life gross written premium is expected to increase from SEK93.9 billion (US$13.7 billion) in 2014 to SEK116.6 billion (US$14.9 billion) in 2019, at a forecast period CAGR of 4.4%.
