The Turkish insurance industry has undergone serious changes in the last years and has progressed significantly to comply with the European Union and the global practices in relation to conversion to IFRS, Solvency II, developments in corporate governance and internal systems, changes made in technical reserve calculations that influence financial reporting to a great extent.
The developments in question are indicators of the growth potential of the sector, which also herald that the insurance industry will gain more importance in financial markets, while intra-market competition will heat up even more. The business environment which bears a great deal of opportunities and risks, necessitates professional consultancy services which are performed with a business partner approach and which include value creating solutions.
The quest for solutions caused by both the fact that the present social insurance system cannot provide adequate services for people, and the burden brought on the public budget due to the system has led to the adoption of the private pension fund system, which has been implemented in a wide range of developing countries, and the enactment of the Law on “Private Pension Savings, and Investment System”. The participants of the pension system have commenced to become eligible for retirement.
