Pandemic and weather events mark the insurance market
Folha de S.Paulo notes that the life insurance market remains heated. Nubank says it has reached 90,000 active insurances since December, when it launched the product in its application. Half of these customers had never purchased protection, according to the company.
This week, Zurich launched yet another life insurance, which offers customizable protections. In addition to coverage, the product covers 15 assists for the customer to choose three, and the indemnity receivable can be up to R $ 5 million.
Other insurance lines grew last year which, in addition to the pandemic, was marked by extreme weather events in the south and southeast of the country.
