This Insurance Sector Report captures the CSR's view on the medium-term prospects of the industry. Based on our analysis, we expect total premiums to reach N1 trillion ($6.13 billion) by 2019, increasing penetration to 0.9% from 0.4% of GDP in 2013.

On a company specific level, we retain a BUY rating on CUSTODYINS and initiate coverage on CONTINSURE and AIICO with BUY ratings.
