Insurance assumes changes in its future policies due to the impact of the pandemic

The balance left by the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic has forced insurers to take out the calculator to estimate what the evolution of the business may be when the confinement ends and, above all, when the activity returns to normal at medium and long term. And one of the first changes that the sector will face will be a reordering both in the offer of products to customers, and in the conditions of the insurance of the different branches, as well as in the price. Everything will depend on the commercial policy of each entity, but financial sources admit that insurers will have to carry out an evaluation exercise to adapt their business to a new reality.

Statistics show the link between the evolution of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the insurance premium income of the Non-Life branch of insurers. When in the middle of the 2009 recession the economy fell at a rate close to 4%, the billing of these general insurances (cars, health, death, home, etc.) also fell that 4%. With the recovery, the volume of premiums increased above what the economy did until 2017, according to data from the Directorate General of Insurance and Pension Funds. The sector assumes that growth will be less than in recent quarters due to the contraction in consumption itself.

In the case of car insurance, the sector is verifying, on the one hand, how the accident rate is much lower than before the state of alarm, which generates savings for companies. But, at the same time, premium income has decreased due to paralysis in the sale of vehicles, among other circumstances. From Mutua Madrileña, one of the main companies, which saw its Auto market share grow to around 14% in 2019, admit that “it will be a difficult year” because this industry will decrease the total volume of premiums for the entire sector. “It will take a lot of work so that in the following years” the situation will stabilize again, they indicate in the firm.

Different perspectives face health insurance. The health crisis has caused, among other circumstances, that a good part of the services contracted by clients (outpatients, dental clinics, etc.) cease to operate. In this sense, Mutua Madrileña has provided a support fund of 160 million euros (in addition to the package of support measures for 50 million to overcome the crisis). It will serve to provide liquidity to the professionals of your medical staff and hospital providers of Adeslas. In this way they try to mitigate the current situation, but also “facilitate the recovery of their activity” once the crisis is over.

But health insurance will also experience another reality when the pandemic passes. The type of active products, as well as their conditions, will change. This is what Francisco Valencia, director of the Communication and Sustainability area of ​​Línea Directa, explains as “a moment to reflect on the strengthening of coverage and analyze well the needs that may arise” derived from this crisis. He indicates that the future situation “will force exploration of routes” such as that of telemedicine, until now a minority, but whose weight will increase in the future.

The rate at which the economy itself returns to normal will determine the volume of premiums contracted by citizens and, therefore, the insurance companies’ own exit from the crisis. In the previous recession, their solvency levels were reinforced in general terms.

Suspend dividends

Now, the Ministry of Economy has asked insurers to paralyze the remuneration of their shareholders and not to assume irrevocable payment commitments or carry out operations that, like share repurchases, may have a materially equivalent effect, while the crisis continues. . The S&P agency considers that this decision does not imply any credit risk, but shows caution. Mapfre approved that deal at its March meeting, before the state of alarm. It will decide whether to suspend the 2020 dividend, as some banks have announced, depending on the situation.

Línea Directa –controlled by Bankinter– also maintains its plan to go public in the last quarter. And it is making progress in all legal, financial and administrative procedures to materialize the operation.
