In 2016 the national insurance sector had a record year, increasing its net profit after tax to €1,808 billion, a considerable rise of 45.7% compared to the previous financial year. This result far exceeds the previous record set in 2012. This strong performance can be attributed to non-life insurance and reinsurance which are both progressing at very fast rates of +53.78% and +55.91%.

The Insurance Commission expects activity in the non-life insurance sector to double.
