The KPMG's annual South African Insurance survey includes a variety of topics with a focus on data quality and the availability and use of information. We know that these aspects are becoming extremely crucial for insurance companies and their service providers with SAM on the horizon.
Two of the BRICS countries were the hosting nations of the 2014 and 2010 FIFA World Cup Football Tournaments, being Brazil and South Africa. With this in mind we have included a thought provoking article on the opportunities for insurers in high growth markets. Trends in these markets were discussed with KPMG insurance leaders and have highlighted the opportunities currently prevailing and a sense of what is to come.
Our survey would not be complete without some regulatory content. Just as it seemed you had everything under control you realised that you were not going fast enough! On a less serious note we have benchmarked the remuneration models of football players and insurance executives – the results . . . are too interesting not to read!
But these are only a few of the topics featured in this year’s edition. As always we have included and analysed the financial results of the year gone by. We have made every effort to ensure that the content in this publication is fresh, relevant and thought provoking. We trust that you will find this publication insightful and we invite you to contact us should you require any additional information or assistance.
