Key findings of the report stand out: 

  • The dominance of Korean Re to the reinsurance market;
  • The dominance of the four large domestic companies – the “chaebols” with nearly 70% market share of the direct insurance market;
  • The relatively small but developing role of brokers in the commercial classes;
  • The increasing regulatory activity in the Korean market, with the enforcement in late 2013 of the ruling that offshore reinsurers cannot visit
  • Korea to meet with ceding companies.
