Insurance Around The World

This section of our website is here purely for people’s interest. We seek to provide background information about the development of insurance markets and how insurance is conducted in other countries in the EU and around the world.

To get us started, we have commissioned some basic external research which we will add to and amend over time.

We also would welcome further input from anybody else to correct, and to and generally improve what we have begun.

We are particularly interested in the role and position of brokers - if any - in each country; and how they fare against other distribution channels, how they are remunerated etc.

Click on a country to see the full information from that country.


This section of our website was first opened in late October 2014. Our first priority has been to publish at least a basic description of the insurance markets in up to three dozen countries, then to gradually enhance them over time.

The key as to where we think we are with each one is indicated with an adjacent listed category.
