<p>With 21 positions on the list of the top 50 global life insurers by life and accident & health reserves, European businesses from six different countries topped the list. With seven carriers based there, the UK has the highest concentration of businesses in Europe.</p>
<p>Asia has the second-highest number of life insurers worldwide, holding 17 slots on the list of the best. Mainland Five Asian corporations have their headquarters in China and Japan, which share the top rank.</p>
<p>With eight US-based firms, two Canadian companies, and two Bermudan enterprises, North America accounted for twelve slots on the list. With eight life insurers in the top 50 list, the US leads all other countries in this regard.</p>
<p>Seventh on the list of the biggest life insurers worldwide is MetLife Inc., the biggest US-based life insurance firm. Eighth on the list is Prudential Financial Inc., the second-biggest life insurance firm with its headquarters located in the United States.</p>
<p><strong>Concerning this analysis</strong></p>
<p>Based on their 2022 life, accident, and health reserves, companies are graded. In general, life, accident, and health reserves are a liability meant to cover future obligations under active policies. The precise makeup of reserves may change depending on the particular accounting system that the listed firms use. The analysis is based only on the best efforts of non-public insurance businesses in North America and Europe and public insurance companies worldwide.</p>
<p>The figures may vary from any restated value due to factors such as accounting changes in Long-Duration Targeted Improvements in the US and International Financial Reporting Standards in other regions. These figures are based on originally reported values. To obtain the data in Microsoft Excel, click this link.</p>
<p><strong>observing the transfer of wealth</strong></p>
<p>When asked to name the most pressing difficulties that life insurers will face in the future, experts pointed out that one of the main ones would be how the global life insurance market will adjust to the impending massive wealth transfer that will occur between generations.</p>
<p>“That wealth transfer is going to occur everywhere in the world,” said Samantha Chow, global head of Capgemini’s life, annuities, and benefits division. She added that issues related to an aging population will be the driving force behind this wealth transfer. According to Chow in an interview, the life insurance business does not currently have the necessary technology or products to handle this difficulty.</p>
<p>In an interview, Brian Galbraith, a partner in Deloitte’s insurance group, said that in addition to declining birth rates and an older population, there has been a change in the way that people see life insurance. According to Galbraith, the “explosive growth” in the demand for insurance during the epidemic has begun to level down, but life insurers are eager to discover chances for expansion amid the changing demographics.</p>
<p><strong>Growth Opportunities</strong></p>
<p>Given that 2024 also happens to be a year of the presidential election, Chow anticipates that dealmakers in the US would have a “hard year.”</p>
<p>The election is set for November 2024, and the regulatory watchdogs in Washington that oversee mergers and acquisitions would have new leadership under a new government.</p>
<p>“It’s unlikely that we’ll witness a significant amount of mergers and acquisitions in the upcoming year, and if it does, it will likely occur in the first quarter or first half of the year,” Chow said.</p>
<p>In light of macroeconomic circumstances, Karl Hersch, the head of Deloitte’s US insurance business, believes that the life sector will see reduced levels of growth in the US and Europe, but that there will be greater chances in developing nations.</p>
<p>“I anticipate greater growth in emerging markets, as they already have a larger population of underserved individuals and more opportunities,” Hersch said.</p>
<p>Asia is leading the globe in the growth of a digitally driven experience, according to Rob Sims, managing director and partner in the insurance group at Boston Consulting Group.</p>
<p>In an interview, Sims said, “The players who are really succeeding are investing heavily in both their agents and their digital capabilities.”</p>
<p>In general, experts agreed that artificial intelligence would have an influence on all aspects of the insurance value chain, including marketing, underwriting, claims, and products, with customer service likely to be most affected.</p>
