Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/26/2014 -- In terms of gross written premium, the Dutch life insurance segment is the 13th-largest in Europe, and accounted for the second-largest share of the Dutch industry (25.0%) in 2012. Gross written premium recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% during the review period (2008-2012), from EUR79.3 billion (US$116.2 billion) in 2008 to EUR76.0 billion (US$97.8 billion) in 2012. This was primarily due to the financial crisis and the addition of savings products to bank portfolios, which provide the same tax advantages as insurance products. This increased competition and put pressure on unit-linked products.
