The New Zealand life insurance segment grew during the review period, albeit at a moderate pace, at a review-period CAGR of 5.1%. This can be attributed to losses recorded due to a series of earthquakes caused in 2011. The life segment is expected to remain stable and register a CAGR of 6.6%, in gross written premium terms over the forecast period, supported by a recovery in economic conditions. High levels of underinsurance, coupled with an aging population are all expected to create demand for life insurance products over the forecast period. New Zealand's life insurance penetration stood at 0.7% of GDP in 2013, below the OECD average of 5%. The country has the fourth-lowest penetration rate of all 34 OECD countries with only Estonia, Turkey and Iceland having lower.
