Compulsory car insurance is becoming more expensive. What’s the explanation?

According to some analysts, it seems that the next price increases would come from the insurance area, including RCA or other types of insurance, such as housing.

The direct exposure of companies in Europe is low, but the costs of damage and expenses of insurers will increase substantially, along with general inflation, says Petr Iakubik, Financial Stability Team Leader at EIOPA (the European organization of private insurance and pension supervisors).

“European insurers have limited activities in the three countries, a small number of groups are active through subsidiaries in these countries, whose size is small compared to the groups they come from. In terms of assets held, two issues are relevant: exposure to the banking sector and exposure to sectors of the economy that are more sensitive to changes in energy and gas prices, and losses in these sectors affect investment.

Inflation affects insurance companies by increasing the cost of compensation. This is especially true for non-life insurance. Insurance companies need to make reservations for future damages and therefore need to take into account future prices, which will obviously be higher.

The reserves (no: by which insurers guarantee the payment of existing and future damages) and the expenses of insurance companies will have to be adjusted to reflect inflation. Insurers are technical reserves whose calculation formula includes inflation. The period of payment of damages is very important. The longer the duration, the stronger the inflation will have an effect. In general insurance, over 55% of the reserves extend for periods longer than two years “, said Iakubik, in Bucharest.
