The latest edition of sigma promotes the need for improved underwriting margins in most non-life primary markets. Pricing dynamics may have reached an inflection point with some moderate rate increase since late 2017, but it is too soon to declare a return to hard market conditions. We expect positive economic momentum to support earnings but this alone will not generate sustained improvement in profitability: more rate increases are needed. All told, insurance remains an attractive long-term investment opportunity, having delivered returns comparable with others sectors over the long run, and also offering diversification benefits.

Take the survey and help shape topics that sigma covers in the future.
