Life insurance is more in demand than investment insurance, according to LIA

The New Zealand Life Insurance Association has prepared a report according to which the traditional life insurance policy sale continues to outpace the sale of investment-related products, Taipei Times reports.
Life insurance is more in demand than investment insurance, according to LIA

Last month, the total premiums of traditional life insurance policies increased to $1.56 billion, the sale of investment products, on the contrary, fell by 14.7% in annual terms. The experts believe that investment products are less popular because they offer low returns due to instability in global financial markets. Six of the country's largest insurers in a row have been reducing interest rates from month to month. As a result, the customers prefer classic products.

“Over the eight months, the life insurance premiums have grown by 10.3% to $555.15 billion, while the premiums from investment insurance for the same period have fallen by 21.4% to $123.51 billion," the LIA report says.

Besides, as insurers continue to cut rates, the traditional life insurance product sales may improve in the short term.
