Insurance in Costa Rica 2014: Direct Premiums Up 15%

Premiums for personal policies led growth in 2014 compared to the previous year, followed by general and mandatory policies.

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

From a statement issued by the Superintendent of Insurance in Costa Rica (SUG):

Voluntary insurance represent 69% of total premium revenue, showing an increasing trend across the board. Total premium income, including compulsory policies, was $1.1674 billion.

2014 data correspond to the correct way to measure premiums, however they are not comparable with previous periods, since the latter were undervalued in relation to workplace hazards.
