The fifth edition of ASEAN Insurance Pulse focuses on natural catastrophes and in particular flood risk as well as its impacts to ASEAN economy and insurance market. ASEAN Insurance Pulse 2021 explores the key trends driving the financial risk management of natural catastrophes and flooding in the region. In this context, the report also highlights the increasing importance of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles in underwriting and asset management of insurers.
The year 2020 has been coined by the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented global health crisis that dominated societies, economies and insurance markets worldwide. The ASEAN markets make no exception here. ASEAN Insurance Pulse 2020 investigates the impact of the crisis on the region’s economies and its insurance markets. It takes the pulse of the region’s insurance executives on how the pandemic shaped their markets, which actions regulators took to supervise during the crisis and how the virus will change the regions’ insurance industry.
ASEAN Insurance Pulse 2019 draws on in-depth structured interviews with senior executives of 43 national, regional and international insurance and reinsurance companies’ intermediaries and trade associations operating across the ASEAN region. This year’s edition of the survey-based research publication focuses on the state of digitisation of the region’s insurance players. The survey also analyses the impact of digitisation on the region’s US$31 billion non-life insurance markets and their growth and profitability prospects.
