Thanks to strong economic tailwinds, rising risk awareness and record-high savings buoyed by booming markets, global premiums grew by a healthy 5.1% in 2021; both segments contributed to the recovery (life: +4.4%; p&c: +6.3%). Total premium income reached EUR 4.2trn (life: EUR 2.5trn and p&c: EUR 1.7trn) or 5.4 percent of global economic output.

The global numbers, however, conceal the “drama” at the national level.
