21st Annual Insurance Industry Conference
NYSSA SmartBrief | Mar 17, 2017
Join us Monday, March 20, and Tuesday, March 21, at 8 a.m. in the NYSSA Conference Center for our 21st Annual Insurance Industry Conference, where we will explore the trends of 2016 and predictions for 2017 in the insurance industry. In 2016, we witnessed a shift toward life insurance sector and away from nonlife. We expect the nonlife sector to face some headwinds in 2017 from the combination of intense pricing competition, lower favorable reserve development and abundant excess capital. We expect the life sector to also face some headwinds in 2017, although less so than in 2016, as new premiums are invested at yields that are still below the current portfolio yield.
