Trinidad and Tobago’s insurance industry has persevered through recent economic struggles and recession. With GDP forecast to expand in 2020 and 2021 and demand for health and life products rising, T&T’s insurance sector exhibits strong potential and its performance expected to improve further. The proliferation of digital offerings will ensure that a larger customer base receives better service and personalised options. Local insurers report needing more information to make assessments, and as such it will be important to make more data available while respecting privacy concerns. Other challenges include a shortage of foreign exchange, a lack of reliable data and wider macroeconomic pressures. However, consolidation, innovation, the rise of insurance technology and digitalisation are expected to strengthen the sector. This chapter contains an interview with Ravi Tewari, CEO, Guardian Holdings.
