Key Highlights

Life insurance has been one of the most popular means of saving in South Korea. The South Korean life insurance segment is mature and its scope for further growth is limited when compared to the life insurance segments of countries such as China and India

Traditionally, South Korean life insurers relied on their large network of insurance brokers, solicitors and internal employees

With the amendment of the regulation on supervision of business in January 2011, the Standards for Classification of insurance types were formulated. The new standards separate the third insurance business from life insurance and non-life insurance

Within the South Korean life insurance market, individual life insurance represented the largest category in terms of written premium with a total market share of 33.0% in 2011

As of March 31, 2011, fourteen domestic and nine foreign life insurance providers offer services in the South Korean life insurance segment. The life insurance market is highly concentrated with domestic insurers accounting for up to 80% market share
