  • Infrastructure development in sub-Saharan African countries: does
           insurance matter'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this paper is to assess the contribution of insurance to infrastructure development in Sub-Saharan Africa. The researchers used a sample of 31 Sub-Saharan African countries from a panel of data observed over the period 2003–2020. The methodologies used in this paper are the Driscoll-Kraay and Panels Corrected Standard Error. The results show that insurance (life and non-life) positively explains the level of infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa. Furthermore, using disaggregated infrastructure indices, the effect remains the same for transport, electricity, and water and sanitation infrastructure. However, insurance has no significant effect on telecommunications infrastructure. Our results remain robust using an instrumental variable technique, two stage least square. The economic policy suggestions concern the improvement of the regulatory framework for the insurance business so that it can participate effectively in financing the economy. In addition, a strengthening of the public–private partnership is commendable in order to provide governments with an alternative source of infrastructure financing, different from the generally used public financing, whose capacity is likely to be insufficient.

  • Digitalisation and cream skimming adverse selection in the
           property-casualty insurance industry: evidence from China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the potential of digitalisation to mitigate insurers’ vulnerability to cream skimming adverse selection and explores the mechanism underlying this effect. Employing unbalanced panel data of 84 property-casualty insurance companies in China from 2010 to 2020, our investigation reveals that digitalisation reduces insurers’ susceptibility to cream skimming adverse selection, especially among firms located in areas with lower levels of social trust. Digitalised insurers are able to collect a wider variety of customer information, make pricing more effective and therefore achieve lower loss ratios in contrast to their less digitalised rivals. Moreover, we discern a more pronounced impact of digitalisation on companies during their growth stages as compared to their well-established counterparts. Our findings remain robust when subjected to various endogeneity and robustness tests.

  • Sustainable investing in the US and European insurance industry: a text
           mining analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper uses a text mining analysis to study the development of sustainable investing in the European and US insurance industry as reflected in their public reports from 2013 to 2018. The sample comprises 1215 annual, sustainability- and investment-related documents of 77 firms. We develop a dictionary with principles, criteria and terminologies as well as strategies, and differentiate between the quality of reports. Our results show that the number of firms referring to as well as the word count related to sustainable investing substantially increase over the sample period, and that insurers reporting about sustainable investing are on average significantly larger. We also find that European insurers report much more extensively on their sustainable investment practices as compared to US insurers in our sample. Most relevant in 2018 are references to general ESG criteria, followed by responsible investment and the Sustainable Development Goals. Top strategies mentioned were ESG integration and impact investing, whereby we observe that insurers evolve from mentioning one single towards multiple strategies over time. Finally, a regression analysis does not show a value-effect of sustainable investment-related keywords in reporting on Tobin’s Q, which may be due to the rather long-term investment perspective.

  • The ILS loss experience: natural catastrophe issues 2001–2020

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract “If there were no losses; there would be no premiums,” Insurance proverb. This paper analyzes the history of natural catastrophe Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS), or Cat Bonds (CB), from 2001 to 2020. Preliminary analyses summarize the annual character of issuance during that period, providing context for the principal focus of the paper, which is losses. A detailed loss record is provided, including why and when losses occurred. This record, when set against the historic issuance, allows us to address several important questions, unaddressed in the literature but constantly posed by practitioners. Does the cumulative loss over 20 years equal what catastrophe models led to us expect' Were the relative sizes of actual losses reflective of expected losses' Most importantly, does the loss record support the idea that natural catastrophe models are accurate and useful' This paper is the first to specifically address these fundamental forensic questions against the loss record. It thereby makes an important contribution to the growing literature about ILS markets.

  • Institutional determinants of insurance penetration in Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper investigates the institutional determinants of insurance demand in Africa. We used a panel of 42 countries over the period 1996–2017. A system GMM approach was used for the estimations. Consistent with previous results, we find that institutional quality has positive and significant effects on insurance penetration in Africa. Specifically, regulatory quality, rule of law, control of corruption, political stability and absence of violence, and government effectiveness are the five institutional quality indicators that have positive and significant effects on the demand for total insurance and life insurance. However, only regulatory quality, control of corruption and government effectiveness are positively associated with non-life insurance demand. This indicates that governments should improve the business environment and strengthen the political environment to boost insurance development in Africa.

  • How default effects and decision timing affect annuity uptake and health
           consciousness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Annuities provide a lifelong income stream and can therefore help individuals to mitigate the risk of outliving their savings, a highly topical issue in the context of increasing life expectancies. Given that real-world annuitization rates remain relatively low, we investigate the influence of behavioral biases on people’s choice between a lifelong annuity and a lump sum payout. In so doing, we focus on the impact of default effects due to a preselected annuity option (default option) and the impact of the decision’s timing (decisions on annuitization taken by younger individuals refer to a distant future, those taken by older individuals to a near future) on annuity uptake and health consciousness. We used a scientific survey panel to conduct an online experiment with a diversified sample of 339 participants (55.2% female, average age = 42.5 years). Our results show that the timing of the decision moderates the default effect on annuity uptake, in that the effect of a preselected (default) annuity option is stronger for distant-future decisions (i.e., choice of annuity instead of lump sum at retirement made by younger participants purchasing a deferred annuity) than for near-future decisions made by older individuals who are closer to retirement. We further find that the default effect moderates health consciousness after choosing an annuity. Health consciousness is stronger in the no-default condition than in the annuity default condition.

  • Capital issuances and premium growth in the property–liability insurance
           industry: evidence from the financial crisis and COVID-19 recession

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19-driven stock market crash in early 2020, as well as the recession following the financial crisis, generated sizeable operating losses for property–liability insurance companies. However, property–liability insurers were able to hold their capitalisation levels relatively stable during both recessions, issuing new capital and reducing dividends. We use these two recent recessions to empirically examine the determinants and consequences of capital issuances by property–liability insurance companies. We find that property–liability insurers raise capital to restore depleted levels due to operating losses and to fund business growth, and these determinants do not change during recessions. We further examine whether capitalisation levels constrain insurers' ability to meet demand during recessions and find no evidence this occurs. We rather find that new capital is associated with premium growth in subsequent time periods. There seem to be fewer frictions affecting property–liability insurers to recapitalise and accommodate demand compared to other financial services firms.

           input–output network analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the systemic importance of the financial services sector in the global input–output network between 2000 and 2014. To measure the systemic importance of the financial services and insurance sectors of 13 major economies with the Financial Stability Board identified Globally Systemically Important Banks and Globally Systemically Important Insurers, we construct a local and global shock contagion index using the partial extraction technique in input–output analysis. We demonstrate how local supply reductions in the insurance or other financial services sectors can have a global spillover effect on GDP. We also find that the systemic importance of the financial services and insurance sectors varies over time depending on the size and structure of the economy in different economies (such as the U.S. and China). Additionally, we investigate the impact of simultaneous supply shocks that have originated in the insurance and other financial services (e.g., banking) sectors of different economies. Empirical evidence suggests that simultaneous supply shocks in the financial services sectors in certain economies could contribute to, at least a large portion of, economic downturns, as observed during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.

  • Does the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal use impact private health
           insurer prescription drug expenditures'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We evaluate whether health insurer aggregate prescription drug expenditures change after the legalisation of medicinal cannabis using U.S. health insurer financial filings reported to state insurance regulators and compiled by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners for private health insurers from 2010 to 2018. We analyse this question for health insurers in the individual market, which includes plans sold on the Affordable Care Act exchanges, the small group market, which consists of fully insured plans sold to employers with fewer than 50 employees, and the large group market, which consists of fully insured plans sold to employers with more than 50 employees. For all three markets, the treatment effects are not significant. Thus, we find no impact of medical cannabis legalisation on health insurer prescription drug expenditures, despite the potential disruption to the health insurance market. Had legalisation increased prescription drug expenditures, the increases in cost would have been borne by enrollees, which is troubling since healthcare costs are rising faster than inflation.

  • Supervisory power and insurer financial stability: the role of
           institutional quality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This is the first study to investigate whether country institutional quality influences the impact of supervisory power on insurer soundness. It tests the hypothesis arguing that institutional quality enhances the implementation capacity of supervisors versus the one that maintains that institutional quality mitigates the impact of supervisory power on insurer soundness, particularly when this effect is negative. An analysis is carried out on firms operating in the insurance markets of 12 Muslim-populous countries over the eight-year sample period 2009–2016. As a proxy of insurers’ financial stability, we use the Z-score and conduct the study by employing the two-step system generalised method of moments. We find a negative impact of supervisory power on insurer soundness—exercised by increasing portfolio risk—that is mitigated by national institutional quality, in particular by government effectiveness, regulatory quality and control of corruption. The findings emphasise the view that national institutional quality avoids private use of supervision.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We investigate the impact of new financial and economic determinants on life insurance demand for 29 OECD countries for the period 2005–2017 while controlling for a set of widely used socio-demographic and economic characteristics. Based on a panel smooth transition regression model, we find a regime-switching effect characterising the impact of bank concentration and interest rate on the size of the life insurance market, in light of the old-age dependency ratio as the threshold variable. We also show that life insurance development is boosted in countries with high scores for investment freedom and with high levels of foreign direct investment rates, regardless of the level of the old-age dependency ratio. The impact of GDP per capita on the demand for life insurance products is positive and statistically significant, regardless of the level of the threshold variable.

           preferences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We analyze the preferences of 1180 German consumers for investment guarantees in financial products by means of choice-based conjoint and latent class analysis. Based on the segment-level partworth utility profiles, we then identify the most important investment guarantee features, analyze consumer demand in a realistic market setting, and test whether individual purchasing behavior can be explained by socioeconomic characteristics. Our results show that two buyer and two nonbuyer segments exist. Although their willingness to buy varies significantly, we document only a small degree of heterogeneity with respect to the individual guarantee attributes and levels. Across the sample, the guarantee period is most important, followed by the volatility of the underlying fund, and the up-front premium. Finally, we illustrate that particularly those socioeconomic characteristics with an impact on individuals’ financial situation are promising predictors of their willingness to purchase investment guarantees.

  • Solvency determinants: evidence from the Takaful insurance industry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper contributes to the nascent literature on Takaful by investigating the solvency determinants for Takaful firms in both the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Malaysian economies. Our main objective is to develop a deeper understanding of the solvency determinants of these firms. Using hand- collected microdata for the period 2011 to 2016 for 52 Takaful firms, we document that firm size and wakalah fees significantly decrease solvency. From a regulatory point of view, this finding underscores that the percentage of wakalah fees should be closely monitored. Moreover, we find that other explanatory variables, including return on assets and the risk retention and investment income ratios, are not significantly associated with solvency. Overall, our results remain robust to many different model specifications. Further analysis indicates significant differences between the GCC and Malaysian Takaful firms. This may be explained by the different stages of financial development in the two markets.

  • On the macrofinancial determinants of life and non-life insurance premiums

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper tests potential determinants of the development of the insurance sector. Using a rich dataset for 24 European countries spanning two decades, we identify a set of macrofinancial factors that are the most robust predictors of growth of gross premiums in the life and non-life insurance sectors. We show that both life and non-life premiums co-move with the business cycle and are positively related to higher savings and a more developed financial system. In addition, we provide new evidence on the role of market concentration and price effects. We find that market concentration matters only for life insurance, whereas the price channel is significant only for non-life insurance. From a policy perspective, our empirical estimates can be used to refine the existing macroprudential stress tests of the insurance sector.

  • Diversification and Solvency II: the capital effect of portfolio swaps on
           non-life insurers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Diversification plays a pivotal role under the risk-based capital regime of Solvency II. The new rules reward large and well-diversified insurance companies with relatively low capital requirements compared to those of small and specialised nature. To enhance diversification, insurance companies can adjust their strategy by engaging in mergers and acquisitions or new market entries. Alternatively, insurers can accept higher Solvency II capital requirements, displaying a competitive disadvantage and impeding future growth. This research proposes a Solvency II portfolio swap as a new diversification solution that allows small and specialised insurance companies to improve their diversification, and thus, mitigate their diversification disadvantage. The effect of such swaps is demonstrated through the use of two hypothetical insurance companies by swapping 20% of their portfolio over four different scenarios. The swap allowed for a 6% reduction in the Solvency Capital Requirement (SCR) and a maximum increase of the SCR coverage ratio of 17%. With Solvency II posited to stimulate further mergers and acquisitions within the European insurance market, this paper offers an alternative method for insurers to diversify their portfolio. Furthermore, it is suggested that the proposed alternative risk transfer method may improve insurance market competition within the EU by facilitating small and specialised insurers’ competitiveness.

  • Earthquake loss and Solvency Capital Requirement calculation using a
           fault-specific catastrophe model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As of January 2016, the Solvency II Directive demands that all insurance companies in the EU perform a Solvency Capital Requirement (SCR) calculation. We propose an earthquake catastrophe model that calculates the SCR using an innovative hazard module. We test our model in the Attica region, which hosts 41.6% of the insured buildings in Greece. The results show a risk premium of 1.63% up to 3.16% for residential buildings, depending on exposure and deductible policy. A comparison between the EIOPA’s Standard Formula (SF) and our model shows that the SF overestimates the SCR by 19.3% in the Attica region. The addition of the 2% deductible to the exposure policies results in a 56.8% lower SCR than when using the SF. The overestimation varies from 2.7% to 133.57% in seven out of 10 catastrophe risk evaluation and standardising target accumulations zones, and by 16.28–32.97% in the three remaining zones.

  • Factors influencing policyholders' acceptance of life settlements: a
           technology acceptance model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The most significant market for life settlements (LSs) is the U.S. LSs are not present in some European countries, such as Spain, and can therefore be seen as a novel and innovative financial service in those countries. This last consideration motivates this paper, which analyses the key factors, from the seller’s perspective, for the development of a secondary life insurance market through LSs in Spain. To do so, we use consumer behaviour findings from academic research on the acceptance of new technologies and services. Our analysis is based on the technology acceptance model developed by Davis (MIS Q 13:319–340, 1989) and Venkatesh et al. (MIS Q 27:425–478, 2003) and it is adjusted by means of a partial least squares-structural equation modelling. The findings show that relevant variables for the use of LSs are performance expectancy, expected easiness and social influence constructs. Ethical problems are not relevant in the decision to accept LSs.

  • Crop insurance premium subsidy and irrigation water withdrawals in the
           western United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We estimate the effects of the federal crop insurance premium subsidy on freshwater withdrawals for irrigation among U.S. counties to the west of the 100th meridian. Our results indicate that a 1% increase in premium subsidy leads to a 0.446% (about 475,901 acre-feet/year) and 0.673% (about 474,026 acre-feet/year) increase in total freshwater withdrawals for irrigation and fresh surface water withdrawals for irrigation, respectively. The elasticity of total freshwater withdrawals for irrigation and fresh surface water withdrawals for irrigation with respect to revenue insurance premium subsidy is more than twice as large as those with respect to yield insurance premium subsidy. Groundwater withdrawals for irrigation are not found to be responsive to crop insurance premium subsidy. Because the elasticities are all non-negative, moral hazard should not be a dominant factor in the relationship between crop insurance subsidies and freshwater withdrawals for irrigation. Thus, exploring the causal relationship between crop insurance premium subsidy and agricultural input uses, this study underscores the unintended effect of the federal crop insurance programme on water resource sustainability in the U.S.

  • A dynamic analysis of the demand for life insurance during the 2008
           financial crisis: evidence from the panel Survey of Consumer Finances

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Prior research indicates a significant relation between life events and the demand for life insurance. This paper is the first study to relate the demand for life insurance to household portfolio holdings in a dynamic framework. The study examines changes in life insurance demand as a function of changes in household portfolio holdings and life events using panel data during the recent financial crisis. The results indicate that household portfolio holdings are more significant than life events in explaining life insurance ownership decisions, and suggest a complementary rather than a substitution relationship between the ownership of life insurance and the holdings of equity and bonds during recessions. The results also indicate that households with more financial assets allocated to bonds drop significantly more term life insurance coverage. Further implications for practitioners are discussed.
