Key Highlights

Reinsurance in Egypt grew during the review period: its written premium increased in 2013, at a review-period CAGR of 11.5%.

The treaty reinsurance category accounted for 64.4% of the reinsurance premium in 2013, while the facultative reinsurance category accounted for the remaining 35.6%.

A lack of a domestic reinsurer compels national insurers to cede around 70% of their premium to foreign reinsurers.

In January 2014, the IFE received approvals from six insurers for its proposal to establish a national reinsurance company with an initial paid-up capital of US$200 million.

Egyptian non-life insurers ceded the highest level to reinsurance of the three main primary insurance segments in 2013.

On January 1, 2014, the EFSA accredited British insurance market Lloyds as an approved foreign reinsurer in Egypt. With this approval, insurers in the country can operate smoothly with the syndicate, bypassing the cumbersome process of seeking authorization from the regulator. This will also lead to international co-operation and sharing of best practice and expertise.
