Dublin has developed into one of the few truly international re/insurance centres by becoming a home to both generalists and specialists: this diversity of business gives Dublin its unique flavour as an international centre for risk business.
Insurance Ireland, the voice of re/insurance in Ireland, represents 95% of the domestic insurance and 80% of the international Life Insurance market. Insurance Ireland members pay out more than €13 billion in claims & benefits to Irish customers and contribute over €1.6 billion in tax to the Irish exchequer per annum. The insurance industry holds €200 billion in assets in Ireland of which €35 billion is invested in Irish infrastructure and government debt, generates €51bn in premium income (domestic and overseas) and employs more than 28,000 people.
Re/insurance makes a major contribution to Ireland’s economic growth and development and is a cornerstone of modern life. One of the most important aspects of re/insurance is to pay claims to customers at times when they need it most.
Insurance Ireland merged with DIMA (the Dublin International Insurance and Management Association, founded in 1990 to represent international insurance, reinsurance and captive management business in Ireland) in January 2017 to bring together the domestic and international insurance and reinsurance sectors under the one umbrella. The merged association represents over 140 insurers, reinsurers and captives in a major industry
