Key Highlights

During the review period, the fall in life policies sales was caused by long-term low interest rates and a fall in the rate of household savings.

The unemployment rate is high in Portugal due to the adverse effect of the global economic and sovereign debt crises.

The country's aging population is expected to increase demand for pension and annuity products over the forecast period, leading to a shift in the focus of life insurers.

The Portuguese life segment is highly concentrated, with the 10 leading insurers collectively accounting for 88.9% of the segment's direct written premium in 2015.
