InsurConnect Gibraltar
25th January 2024

Despite the challenges posed by global economic uncertainty, Gibraltar's insurance industry has achieved a significant milestone, marking a record-breaking year within the financial services jurisdiction. In 2022, the sector witnessed exceptional growth, with a historic underwriting of over £7 billion, reflecting the industry's resilience in navigating dynamic market conditions.

The sector has displayed remarkable diversification and has seen the expansion into new insurance lines. Intermediation in pet insurance has surged almost 20% and travel insurance has increased to nearly 30% growth. This trend signifies the industry's ability to adapt to evolving consumer needs and cater to emerging markets.
