Market Survey-Reinsurance In Cyprus, Key Trends And Opportunities To 2017

The Cypriot reinsurance segment registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1% during the review period (2008–2012). The primary application of reinsurance in Cyprus is to manage exposure to weather-related events. Although not particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, Cyprus is highly exposed to floods, storms, extreme temperatures and earthquakes. The majority of reinsurance revenues are generated from the non-life segment, which ceded an average of 35.0% of its written premium during the review period, compared with 11.8% and 24.8% for the life and personal accident and health segments.
