In the auto insurance group, one of the most representative in terms of revenue, demand is expected to rise 26% in the year.

In property insurance, the subgroups of massified, engineering risks and large risks also had a favorable performance.
Rural insurance, in turn, which has grown by more than 40% in the 12 months through June compared to the previous period, should close the year up 23.8%. “The firm demand since 2021 has to do with the precaution of producers in the face of climatic extremes, in addition to the subsidy for contracting their coverage”, says CNSeg.
