Although Tunisia’s insurance market has grown steadily in recent years, it continues to be characterised by low penetration. As such, measures that are expected to promote expansion of the sector are being put in place. A new insurance code will strengthen the financial position of insurers and likely encourage a greater degree of sector consolidation. Furthermore, several segments, including life insurance and takaful (Islamic insurance), continue to show growth potential. In line with this dynamic, Tunisian insurers are increasingly considering new product development and ways to take advantage of the country’s high IT usage, focusing on digital mechanisms that can improve the provision of services and be able to reach new customers. This chapter contains an interview with Habib Ben Hassine, President, Tunisian Federation of Insurance Companies.
