BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Turkish insurance market set to grow: Study


ISTANBUL, Turkey— Turkey's insurance market is developing quickly and should continue to grow in a country with low insurance penetration rates, a new report concludes.

The Benfield Group Ltd. report, "Turkey Insurance Market Review: International Interest," reveals that insurance premiums in Turkey have more than doubled to $2.2 billion during the last five years. Non-life was the fastest growing segment, with a 29% per annum increase over the period.

"There has been a surge of foreign interest through both direct and indirect investment in Turkish insurance since 2006," said Angela Coad of London-based Benfield's industry analysis and research team, in a statement.

"Economic growth, low penetration rates, an expanding population, increasing awareness of insurance and a more robust regulatory environment have all been cited as attractions of the insurance market," she said.

Around two-thirds of the Turkish market's reinsurance coverage is provided by the international market, according to the report.
