The Triple-I members-only Q4 Insurance Economic Outlook report, Soft Landing, Headwinds and Rebound, is now available! Paul Carroll Editor-in-Chief and Dr. Michel Leonard, CBE, head of the Triple-I’s Economics and Analytics Department, discuss the Triple-I’s latest Insurance Economics Outlook for Q4 2021 focusing on this year’s unusually wide range of growth and inflation forecasts and key performance indicators for the P&C industry in 2021.
--How insurers in the U.S. are growing much faster than might be expected, given the performance of the sectors of the economy where they do most of their business, but not as fast as GDP as a whole, as it snaps back from the effects of the pandemic.
--How insurers need to stay agile going into 2022, given the uncertainty about the speed of the recovery and given its sector-by-sector nature.
