Insurance Market Development in the Former Yugoslav Republics, Non-EU Countries
This paper presents an insurance market research of the markets in several Balkan countries that were part of former Yugoslavia and are still not members of EU. Being categorized as developing countries, they have far lower development degree in comparison with the European Insurance Federation member countries. By means of comparison between the basic insurance market development indicators in these countries, the law regulations, as well as through conducting surveys, based on questionnaires, which appoint the reasons for the underdevelopment in the sphere of life insurance, the paper gives a clearer perception, in terms of the conditions of the insurance markets, placed on the margins of the European insurance market. Its utmost objective is to point and argue several measures, which would improve the insurance market conditions in the already mentioned countries, i.e. would contribute to the development increase and the acceleration of these insurance markets. As a result, that would raise the protection measures and the safety, both to the citizens and their material goods.
