Executive summary

The Rwandan insurance industry declined in terms of written premium value during the review period. The decrease was a direct consequence of the global financial crisis in 2009. In order to restructure and increase insurance penetration rates, The National Bank of Rwanda enacted a number of new laws in 2009. The new laws included the establishment of proper licensing procedures for insurance intermediaries, laws to monitor insurers’ financial positions and an increase in minimum capital and solvency margins. In addition, the The National Bank of Rwanda (BNR) also enforced several laws to attract new businesses under compulsory insurance provisions such as professional insurance indemnity and insurance cover for civil servants and construction site workers. The new set of regulations helped the industry increase penetration rates.
