Don't Let Life Pass You By

Jun 14, 2008
Thanks to the rise in aging people in Europe, that corner of the world sees growth in the life insurance industry. The study, form the Comite Europeen des Assurances (CEA) saw the growth trend this year as opposed to last year when the market was greatly affected by the sub-prime market woes in the US. The rise is also attributed to demography meaning more people get offers from more providers allowing better choices for the public. Health and Life insurance many Americans now have to forego due to rising food and fuel prices as opposed to Europe which has mostly stable economies allowing stable growth throughout the industry.

Providers are worried at the current trend that the area of commercial and personal insurance is concerned for they are forecast to flat out this year. The main issue is responsive pricing which would allow more people to get insurance as the prices fluctuate. There is no definite way of saying when the problems that are plaguing the financial sector would at least level off but if the current trend continues, the forecast is not good. The decline in the prices of commercial policies also affects the ability of health insurers to come up with innovative prices that are within reach of the ordinary office worker. Many in America are now left without ample insurance due to problems within the troubled economy. As people get displaced either by the massive lay offs that are expected to come as the troubles worsen, the need for insurance increases and many will surely face uncertainty when the industry is forced again to raise prices.

The insurance industry holds its breath as they await first quarter earnings reports. Forecasts for the year are not at all good but many still manage to hold their own weight with more attentive focus on adapting to current financial industry trends. The lower prices have enticed just enough customers to get health insurance along with the introduction of many personalized packages that are made available for the different needs that exist in the various levels of policy holders. The suspense continues as they await financial reports from the industry leaders who are key in the overall health of the industry. Many have been experiencing a slump in sales but have been able to maintain stability and keep existing policies even getting a few new ones to shore up the statistics.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has agreed to move the enactment into law new proposals for changes to the insurance industry. The move would have accredited firms conduct principal reviews for the suitability of such deferred VA applications within only a few days before it is submitted to the insurance company. The amount of time they have specified has been contested by several providers may not be enough to allow them proper review and evaluation. Key representatives of the industry also asked for a different approach to the enforcement of the said rule instead of having a fixed date giving clue to a gradual implementation. The rule has been approved by the US Securities and Exchange Commission last September and has already undergone several revisions to further refine the said rule. The FINRA has also said that they would allow firms time to comply with the rule and they would be handling them in a case to case basis.
