New Liability Insurance Buyers Report 2012: Demand for liability insurance increasing during economic downturn
Companies across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) are buying higher levels of liability insurance as fears increase over possible claims during the economic downturn. Heightened demand, coupled with competitive pricing, has led to an increase in the amount of insurance purchased compared to four years ago, research by Marsh shows.
According to Marsh’s Liability Insurance Buyers Report, the limit of liability insurance purchased across EMEA has increased by 7% since 2008, following three previous years of decline. Since the onset of the financial crisis, the average level of insurance limit in EMEA has risen from €29 million in 2008 to €31 million in 2012, peaking at €32 million in 2011.
