Eastern promise


As part of its annual Middle East Awards, Intelligent Insurer surveyed a wide range of influential experts from the insurance and reinsurance industry, to determine which companies are the leading lights from the region.

Despite the recent turbulence in some parts of the region, the Middle East continues to be an area of development for the insurance and reinsurance industry.

Insurance take-up is on the rise in many areas; the Insurance Commission of Jordan recently reported that preliminary gross insurance premiums grew by 12 percent by the end of 2010, in comparison with the same period the year before.

With both local and international re/insurers seeing promise in the region, many are further developing their operations there.
