Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/11/2012 -- Portugal's reinsurance segment written premium value increased at a CAGR of 2.6% during the review period (2007-2011). In terms of the total reinsurance written premium value in 2011, the treaty reinsurance category accounted for the largest share of 72.7%, while the facultative reinsurance category accounted for 27.3%. The implementation of Solvency II legislation in 2014 and the restructuring of the insurance industry over the forecast period are expected to be important factors.
