The Insurance Industry in Angola, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

Angola is the fifth-largest economy in Africa and is one of the fastest-growing economies globally, with an annual GDP growth averaging 11.6% during 2002–2011. according to IMF. The Angolan economy is highly dependent on the oil sector, which in 2012 accounted for 46.0% of GDP and 96.0% of exports. The country is the second largest oil producer in Africa after Nigeria. Led by stable economic growth and a progressive regulatory environment, the Angolan insurance industry (which is the sixth-largest in Africa, in terms of gross written premium) witnessed a strong growth during the review period (2009–2013). This was primarily driven by the non-life segment, which accounted for 63.6% of the insurance industry gross written premium in 2013. Several insurance companies entered the country’s insurance industry in that year, attracted by its growth potential and low penetration rate, which stood at 0.91% – compared with the average African rate of 3.9%. GA Angola Seguros was the first foreign insurance company to enter the Angolan insurance industry, obtaining a license in 2005. There is lack of awareness among consumers, especially regarding saving and investment life insurance products, which is a major reason for low insurance penetration. The country’s insurance industry is regulated and supervised by the Institute of Insurance Supervision of Angola (ISS) under the Ministry of Finance.

Angola Business Forecast Report Q2 2014, New Report Launched

Publisher expects economic activity in Angola to pick up over the coming quarters following a challenging 2013. Despite a pickup in oil production, we believe the non-oil sector will continue to be the main engine of economic growth, driven in large part by heavy state spending on infrastructure and a buoyant consumer segment. While the current account will remain in the black over next few years, we believe this surplus will decline as a percentage of GDP driven by a gradual weakening of the trade balance on the back of resilient import demand.

Publisher expects inflation in Angola to be relatively contained through 2014 and we are forecasting marginally lower average price growth compared to 2013. While we believe that conditions will continue to broadly support the authorities’ accommodative monetary policy stance over the coming months. Angola’s fiscal accounts will remain in the red over the next few years as an investment-driven development agenda and heavy current spending commitments see government expenditure outstrip revenue generation. We predict that the fiscal deficit will widen to 4.0% of GDP in 2014 from an estimated 2.2% in 2013.

Major Forecast Changes

Weaker than expected oil production in 2013 has prompted us to revise our current account forecasts. We now forecast a current account surplus of 5.9% of GDP in 2014 and 4.3% in 2015 (compared to our previous projections of 8.8% and 7.8% respectively). Also on the back of lower than anticipated oil production in 2013 and revisions to our oil production forecasts, we have adjusted our forecasts for economic growth. We now forecast growth of 6.8% in 2014 compared to 7.3% previously.

Key Risks to Outlook

Our forecasts, as always, remain subject to the myriad uncertainties associated with oil production and exploration in Angola, along with volatility in global oil prices. Given that our forecasts only include planned oil projects, the upside potential posed by the country’s vast and as yet unexploited subsalt reserves poses a major upside risk to our forecasts over the medium-to-long term.

Growing speculation over the health of President Jose Eduardo dos Santos, an increasingly vocal opposition and simmering antigovernment sentiment will see political and social tensions in Angola remain elevated over the coming months.

Although Angola has become one of the largest and fastest-growing economies in Sub-Saharan Africa, its transition over the past decade has not been complemented by a move towards a more open political system. The concentration of power, both political and economic, presents the key challenge to economic development and risk to political stability over the coming decade.

A rebound in oil production and robust non-oil sector growth will see economic growth in Angola accelerate over the coming quarters following a weaker-than- expected 2013. We are forecasting real economic expansion of 6.8% in 2014 and 6.6% in 2015.

Although Angola’s current account balance will remain in the black over the medium term, we expect this surplus to decline as a percentage of GDP due to resilient import demand and persistent deficits in the services, income and transfer accounts. We are forecasting a current account surplus worth 5.9% of GDP in 2014 and 4.3% in 2015.

We expect inflation in Angola to be relatively contained through 2014 and we are forecasting marginally lower average price growth compared to 2013. While we believe that conditions will continue to broadly support the authorities’ accommodative monetary policy stance over the coming months, we see only modest scope for further monetary easing due to rising demand pressures in the country.

Angola’s fiscal accounts will remain in the red over the next few years as an investment-driven development agenda and heavy current spending commitments see government expenditure outstrip revenue generation. We predict that the fiscal deficit will widen to 4.0% of GDP in 2014 from an estimated 2.2% in 2013.

Having averaged double digit rates of real GDP expansion since the end of civil war in 2002, we expect growth in Angola over the next 10 years to come at the more moderate, but still robust level of 6.5% per annum. The successfully implemented fiscal and macroeconomic reforms of 2009-2012 allied to vast, albeit moderating oil revenues, will support the government in its diversification efforts, with a major scaling-up of infrastructure investment – both social and economic – at the heart of its plans.

Angola Telecom Plans to Return to Profitability in 2015 With Government Assistance, New Report Launched

Angola is the second-largest oil producer in sub-Saharan Africa. With peace restored in 2002 after decades of civil war, foreign investment has multiplied and the mobile market has soared despite a continued duopoly between Unitel and Angola Telecom’s Movicel. Intensified competition from a new unified licensing regime could accelerate growth further. Several multinational operators have expressed interest in taking up a licence or other strategic investments in Angola in the US$100 million range.

Competition was also introduced in the underdeveloped fixed-line market, but launch delays and consolidation among the newly licensed players have led to a duopoly in this sector as well between Angola Telecom (AT) and Mercury Telecom. After three years of loss-making operations, Telecom Namibia pulled out of its investment in fixed-wireless operator Mundo Startel, citing regulatory obstacles.

EV-DO and WiMAX-based fixed-wireless as well as 3G and 4G (LTE) mobile broadband services are now also providing more internet access choices for consumers, competing with AT’s ADSL, cable modem and Fibre to the Home (FttH) services. Prices have started to come down with the landing of WACS, the second international fibre optic submarine cable in the country, following years of monopolisation by AT of SAT-3/WASC, the only international cable serving the country until 2012. The operators have budgeted billions of US$ in investments into mobile broadband and national fibre backbone networks for the period 2013-15.

Angola Telecom is going through a restructuring process with the help of international consultants, which is seen as a step towards greater liberalisation of the country’s telecom market, improved efficiency of the national telco and its eventual privatisation. A majority stake in its mobile unit, Movicel has already been sold to private investors and a migration from CDMA to GSM/UMTS/LTE technology has delivered a boost to the mobile market in the past two years. AT has national and international fibre, copper and satellite infrastructure assets worth billions of US$. As part of the restructuring program, the government injected more than US$300 million into the company in 2012. Angola is preparing to launch its first own communications satellite into orbit in 2014.
