Political environment Unfortunately for Pakistan, after the horrifying event of the assassination of Mohatarma Benazir Bhutto, the investment climate has deteriorated, loosing investors' confidence. The event of 27 December, 2007 and the political instability post March 2008, changed the business climate in Pakistan, and gave a major hit to Pakistan economy. Yet, the insurance market grew at a rate of 10%, mainly due to inflation factor.
SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT Social Security will likely provide additional retirement benefits to retirees beginning, for most persons, after turning sixty. Advance loans. Firstly, insurance, like banking, promotes savings to individuals. Secondly, insurance promotes investment. The insurance company can easily invest its funds in industry, agriculture and commerce. Thirdly, the insured person can get loans against the security of insurance policy from insurance company or from banks. Fourthly, insurance as we all know, protects against dangers to life and property. If a person has got his life absence of sufficient financial funds to enable them to resume operations in the wake of a loss and without insurance, these projects would be reduced to nothing more than white elephants.
Technological environment Online bid price system Sms services. Free consultancy The Oracle Exadata Machine V2, made by Sun and Oracle, will replace EFU's legacy system to run their new core insurance application on Oracle technology platform in order to respond better and faster to their business challenges.
Economical environment Life insurance companies not only provide investment expertise to their policy holders but by pooling resources they help diversify investment risk. Life insurance companies can actually play a more important role in generating savings as compared to mutual funds. First, life insurance companies have large trained sales forces that have the ability to reach out to a large number of people. For example EFU Life’s sales force presently numbers more than 2,000 spread across the country through 81 branches. Secondly, in the absence of an effective direct debit mandate system in the country, the sales force of life insurance companies help in the collection of premiums – a very important element for disciplined savings. Thirdly, unlike other investment avenues, people tend to look at life insurance contracts as long term savings vehicles – life insurance policyholders are therefore serious savers rather than speculators.
