Message of ChairmanOn behalf of the Insurance Development and Regulatory Authority (IDRA), I am pleased topresent the Annual Reports combinedly for the financial year 2017-18 and 2010-11 to 2016-17.On our journey to be the benchmark insurance regulator in South Asia, we were able to move upto another progressive level during this year despite the challenges. One of the biggestchallenges faced was building the confidence level of the general people of Bangladeshregarding the claim settlements. We have compelled the companies to settle the claims at about81.52 percent in life sector during the year of 2017 and we hope claim settlement in life sectorwill be more than 90% in future.Despite the challenging environment, the insurance sector recorded a positive growth both inLife and Non-Life insurance businesses during the year 2017. It was able to achieve an overallGross Premium of BDT 10,361.33 crore (2016) from both Life and Non-Life business operationsrecording an increase of around BDT 11,179.89 crore (2017), in absolute terms and a growth of7.9%. Similarly, there was a significant increase in the total assets of the insurance industry,including the assets belonging to Life and Non-Life insurance companies.The computed value of total assets at the end of 2017 was BDT 48,177 crore and recorded agrowth of 7.65 % compared to the previous year. It’s really encouraging that growth rate in assetand investment was positive but at decreasing rate but in 2017 the trend of growth wasincreasing. The industry has experienced a notable positive transformation during the last fewyears due to the regulatory changes introduced by the Insurance Development and RegulatoryAuthority.As Bangladesh is moving forward to become a developing country, with a corresponding increasein GDP and Human Assets Index (HAI) and decrease in Economic Vulnerability Index (EVI), it isimperative that the insurance sector, being one of the pillars of the financial sector of thiscountry, rises to meet the challenges of the future. Through numerous promotional activitieslaunched by the industry and the market development activities conducted by the IDRA, weexpect that the public will be well-informed and educated about the concept of insurance andthe importance of being insured. This will undoubtedly facilitate the creation of a demand-driveninsurance industry in the future. IDRA has already taken some initiatives to enhance insurancepenetration in the country. The Digital insurance scheme by different insurance companies isexpected to reach a considerable number of people in the middle income segments. Insurancecompanies can also play a leading role in filling the protection gap of women who representsaround 50% of the population. Women can also play an important role in marketing and sellinginsurance products across different customer segments, and especially to women. This willcreate a new customer base. I therefore wish to reiterate that the industry must reassess itscapabilities to identify the insurance needs of different segments of the population and developappropriate financial products to meet their demand.The IDRA will be a beneficiary of two foreign funded projects under the Capital MarketDevelopment Program (CMDP) funded by Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the BangladeshInsurance Sector Development Project (BISDP) jointly funded by World Bank (WB) andBangladesh Government. From the WB project, which has several components to improve the3

financial sector in the country, we expect financial and technical assistance for strengthening theregulatory capacity of the IDRA and also to develop the infrastructure and to automate thewhole insurance sector of Bangladesh. Insurance Development and Regulatory Authority, JibonBima Corporation, Shadharon Bima Corporartion and Bangladesh Insurance Academy will bestrengthened by different components of this project. The ADB is looking after the preparationof some important regulations formulated by IDRA. We are hopeful that these reforms will behelpful for the Regulator to achieve vision and mission, and thereby create a more conduciveenvironment for the industry.The process of setting up a state-of-the-art technology platform called Unified MessagingPlatform (UMP) for bring insurance sector under the digitization of has been initiated in theoffice of the Insurance Development and Regulatory Authority. It will be possible to monitor theall premium collection activities of insurer by the Authority through this UPM process.We need to declare a day as the ‘National Insurance Day’. We need to separate the policyholderaccount and shareholder account immediately for the protection of policyholder. We intend toformulate the Solvency Margin Rule in order to address the protection of policyholder. In orderto increase the penetration and density of premium we will have to introduce the Bacassurancesystem as a distribution channel and we are working on it. We are giving more emphasis toincrease the number of policyholders.In conclusion, I wish to place on record my appreciation for the generous support and valuablecontribution made by my colleagues in the Authority, whose commitment in various policymeasures that affect the insurance industry remains one of the greatest strengths of theRegulator. I also wish to thank the industry stakeholders Bangladesh Insurance Association,Bangladesh Insurance Forum and Surveyor Association for their excellent cooperation andcordial relationship that they continue to maintain with us.I also wish to recognize and appreciate the commitment of the Members, Executive Directors,Directors and other staff of IDRA for their dedication and resilience in achieving the objectives ofthe IDRA. I am confident and positive that the team will continue to execute the strategies of theIDRA fulfilling its vision and mission in the years to come.(Md. Shafiqur Rahman Patwari)Chairman4

World Insurance ScenarioGlobal Economic GrowthThe economic environment improved in 2017. Global real gross domestic product (GDP)accelerated significantly, at 3.3% over the year, up from 2.6% in 2016. A synchronized upswing inboth advanced and emerging markets and acceleration in global trade were the driving forces forthe development. GDP growth was substantially above the 2007‒2016 average of 2.5%, whichwas weakened by the 2008/2009 recession. GDP in advanced markets rose 2.3%, up from 1.7%in 2016, while growth in emerging markets increased from 4.0% to 4.8%, slightly below the longterm average (Swiss Re sigma No 3/2018).World Insurance ScenarioAccording to the ‘World Insurance in 2017’ report published by reinsurance major, Swiss Re, theglobal economy improved considerably in 2017, with real gross domestic product (GDP) rising3.3%. Advanced markets, except for the UK, experienced a broad-based cyclical upswing. Inemerging markets, the improvement in commodity exporting countries, continued expansion ofChina and robust growth in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) contributed positively as well.Inflation began to rise in advanced markets and largely remained within central bank targets,while easin in most emerging markets. Long term interest rates remain low by historicalstandards, but approaches to monetary policy have diverged.The expansion of total direct inurance premiums cooled to 1.5% in real terms in 2017, (2016:2.2%). Both the non-life and life sector slowed, but falling life premiums in advanced marketswere the main cause of drag on overall global premium growth. While the life segment amongadvanced markets continues to underperform since the financial crisis, the non-life segment isfollowing the recovery of the overall economy quite closely.Global life premiums increased only marginally by 0.5% to USD 2657 billion in 2017 (2016: 1.4%).The slowdown was primarily driven by advanced markets, which declined 2.7% in 2017 (2016: 1.9%) as all regions experienced negative growth mostly due to low interest rates that continuedto adversely affect the supply and demand for savings products. In emerging markets, lifepremium growth remained strong at 14%, mainly driven by China. In other emerging markets,the expansion was much slower at 5.8%. The main cause was the weak performance of LatinAmerica, while other emerging market in Asia and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) developedfavorably.Global non-life insurance premiums increased 2.8% to USD 2234 billion in 2017, down from 3.3%in 2016, but remained slightly above the 10-year average. The slowdown was mainly due tolower growth in emerging markets, while growth in advanced markets was roughly steady.Growth trends diverged in advanced markets.North America and Western Europe showed improvements, while growth in all advanced Asiamarkets except Taiwan deteriorated. The slowdown in emerging market growth was largelydriven by China, where the speed of expansion halved to a still robust 10%, about the same asother emerging Asia. The moderate pace in CEE continued, but premiums continued to decline inLatin America and the Caribbean.8

Profitability continues to be under pressure in both the life and non-life sectors. In the lifesegment, low interest rates are affecting investment returns, while competition and regulatorychanges have increased the pressure on profitability as well. On the other hand, ROE of the nonlife sector declined for the third consecutive year as the industry experienced underwritinglosses due to heavy losses from natural catastrophes as well as continuing price pressure.Overall, the insurance sector covered USD 138 billion of losses from natural catastrophes andUSD 6 billion from man-made disasters in 2017. The biggest insured losses were related to thethree hurricanes-Harvey, Irma and Maria-which together accounted for an estimated USD 92billion.Bangladesh Insurance in the Global ScenarioGlobally, Bangladesh’s share in global insurance market was 0.03 percent during 2017. However,during 2017, the total insurance premium in Bangladesh increased by -3.7 percent (inflationadjusted) whereas global total insurance premium increased by 1.5 percent (inflation adjusted)(Table1). Globally, the share of life insurance business in total premium was 54.32 percent.However, the share of life insurance business for Bangl
