Serbian Gross Premiums Rose 3.9% in First Quarter
The premiums totaled 14.9 billion dinars ($162 million) in the first three months, with life insurance growing 11.2 percent to 2.56 billion dinars, and non-life insurance expanding 2.5 percent to 12.33 billion dinars, according to a central bank report.
Three top insurers in the country, Dunav Osiguranje AD (DNOS), DDOR Novi Sad AD (DDNS) and Delta Osiguranje AD (DEOS), a unit of Assicurazioni Generali SpA (G), control about two-thirds of the market, even as their combined share shrank to 66.1 percent from 67.4 percent a year ago, as more companies entered the market, the Belgrade-based Narodna banka Srbije said.
