Montenegro, situated in south-eastern Europe on the Adriatic coast of the Balkan Peninsula, is almost entirely mountainous: indeed, its local name, Crna Gora, means "Black Mountain". It separated from the former Yugoslavia in 2006. The country has a population of only 622,000 and an economy which is almost wholly dependent on a rapidly developing tourism sector. The insurance market is small with gross written non-life premiums of only EUR 71.60mn. Although GDP has been growing quite strongly, most new businesses are foreign-invested and subject to fronting arrangements. Domestic companies and consumers have extremely low insurance consciousness, which is reflected in the fact that there is almost no voluntary insurance.
The Montenegrin non-life market comprises five insurers. The market is dominated by the ex-state insurance company. The main distribution channels are branch-based direct sales force and agents. There are 11 domestic insurance brokers.
