The Mauritanian non-life insurance market remains relatively small and undeveloped. In 2016, when total gross written premiums were MRU 8.10bn. Potential for the market is strong given the scale of natural resources in the country, which will fuel economic growth, but the market is being held back by a number of factors.
There are 14 insurers in the market, most of which are composites. Traditionally insurance was sold directly by insurers' own offices, but there are now three main insurance brokers operating, with diversified portfolios.
