The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a constitutional monarchy bordered by Belgium, France and Germany. It has a land area of 2,586 square kilometres, and almost 48% of its population are foreigners. The services-based economy is dominated by the financial sector.
The domestic non-life market in Luxembourg is relatively small, reflecting the country's size, highly developed and mature and dominated by motor and property, which accounted for 47.1% and 25.0% respectively in 2017.
In 2018, total non-life premium income written in the domestic market, including personal accident and healthcare, was EUR 994.00mn (USD 1.10bn), representing a 2.3% increase over 2017. This grew to EUR1,960 in 2020.
The important captive/reinsurance market achieved premium income of EUR 10.60bn (USD 11.77bn) in 2017. Freedom of services business is also widely written. Captive numbers are reducing as mergers and acquisitions occur across several commercial sectors. The increased compliance burden post Solvency II and the availability of cheap insurance are other key drivers.
In July 2018, the direct non-life insurance market consisted of 49 established operations, of which 40 were Luxembourg-registered companies, nine were branches of foreign companies and three composite insurers.
Agency networks operated by each company control the distribution of insurance products. There are very few local brokers, although three major international brokers have local representation.
