Insurers in both the U.S. and globally should benefit from improved operating conditions and the initiatives they have been pursuing in response to the challenges of the past few years, according to a new study by Conning, “U.S. and Global Insurance Industry Outlook: Improving Performance Amid Economic and Regulatory Challenges.” The study presents the challenges and potential insurer responses for the industry generally, with separate discussions for U.S. property/casualty; U.S. life/annuity and U.S. health insurance as well as Europe and Asia.

“Our outlook for the U.S. insurance industry in 2014 is for stable results and some gradual improvement across most segments, brought on by favorable external and internal developments,” the Conning report notes. “Economic drivers are mostly favorable, and many companies are beginning to reap the rewards of investments in technology and increasingly analytical approach to the business. However, this broad view is accompanied by increasing uncertainty; improvements may be interrupted or reversed through economic, political or regulatory developments unfolding in 2014.”
