Insurance World

The insurance market of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has continued its strong momentum in 2017 and returned exceptional profits, according to analysis of company results by A.M. Best.

A.M. Best has a negative outlook on the insurance markets of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Insurers in the GCC (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates) have historically enjoyed significant capital buffers and benefited from extensive reinsurance support; however, continuing headwinds could lead to potential volatility in the operating performance and capitalisation of market participants.
