This is an industry of numbers. While life and health insurance is a deeply personal business, requiring human interaction to address serious familial needs, those things are all driven by clear financial realities, the true engine of the modern life and health industry. What follows are 10 graphs charting some of the biggest indicators of who’s who in the life/health world, focusing on net premiums written, investment income, policyholder surplus and number of health enrollees.
The data for each graph was provided by SNL Financial and was itself pulled from NAIC filings. The data sets specifically used were grouped by SNL from much more granular data to provide a simplified view of the industry.
