 Life insurance sector faces first market decline in a decade

Their research has found that the market has dropped for the first time in a decade, with the first half of 2019 showing a 6.1 per cent decline compared with the same period of last year.

The drop follows a policy to reduce sales of single premium policies, along with high competition from newcomers to the insurance industry.
