Summary

The size and importance of the Icelandic economy is relatively small in the Nordic region. However, the country came into prominence during the 2008 financial crisis after its three major commercial banks collapsed and had to be refinanced by the government. This had serious consequences for the Icelandic economy with the per capita disposable income and national currency decelerating sharply. In addition, the market capitalization of the Icelandic Stock Market (ICEXI) declined by over 90% during the financial crisis. However, these events did not have any significant impact on the countrys insurance industry. The prime reason for this was that the Icelandic insurance industry is dominated by the non-life insurance segment, which accounted for 87.4% of the overall insurance industrys written premium in 2011. The growth in non-life insurance is driven by the favorable regulatory framework.
