Swiss Re’s latest sigma study reveals that total global premiums written increased by 2.4% in real terms in 2012 to USD 4 613 billion. Life premiums expanded by 2.3% unwinding some of the contraction in 2011, thanks to improvements in emerging markets and solid demand in the US and advanced Asian markets.
The world insurance sigma covers premiums written in the global primary insurance industry. Published annually, it has become one of the fixtures of the sigma programme since 1968, the publication's inaugural year. This page gives quick access to all the resources.
