The companies’ activity in fixed annuities is gradually growing, but they do not transfer the longevity risk to a third party. This will prove necessary when the annuity market grows. The companies are growing their risk life business, but few of them have implemented new risk factors instead of gender which is no more allowed in life insurance. All companies use bancassurance as sales channel solution. Almost all of them are a part of a captive structure, and they do not foresee any changes in this. In this respect the companies differ from a current trend in Southern and Central Europe according to which banks are lightening their holdings in insurance companies.
