Results of meeting of the Insurance Union of Russia
in the Evening on September, 8th general meeting of the Insurance union of Russia - the most representative association of the Russian insurance companies has come to the end. In the near future the union will consider as a mainstream of the activity participation in preparation of laws and the statutory acts, concerning insurance. Besides, among the planned actions - a meeting with the German union of insurers in the beginning of next year.
According to the general director of the Insurance union of Russia Ivan Klementyev, at the moment members of the union are 139 insurance companies which half belong to a network of the state insurance firms. One more of the largest insurance companies - the Moscow firm " is literally on the eve of general meeting; Moscow suburbs “ - has expressed desire to join association. The insurance union of Russia is considered the most influential structure in the insurance market - thanks n no small part to participation “ Rosgosstrakh “.
By words g - on Klementyev, recently participation in preparation of laws concerning insurance was the primary goal of the union and statutory acts - experts of the union were engaged, in particular, in working out “ the Law on insurance of the Russian Federation “. Expansion of influence of the Insurance union by working out of similar documents remains its main task and further. According to the observers, the made decision is, perhaps, the most comprehensible: in a situation when insurance services use as a whole enough slack demand, introduction of some obligatory kinds of insurance - for example, obligatory insurance of a civil liability of owners of motor transport (representatives of the Insurance union also participate in preparation of the corresponding project) could be serious stimulus for their development. The positive factor could become and inclusion of insurance payments which according to an existing order are paid from profit, in the cost price. The property of many enterprises which do not have considerable profit, practically is not protected in any way: they simply do not have possibility to pay insurance payments.
Besides, the Insurance union of Russia intends to be engaged in carrying out of training seminars for insurers (the first of them, the insurance activity devoted to the taxation, will pass in the end of October), and also to make active cooperation with the western insurance companies. According to preliminary data, in the beginning of next year the meeting of the union with the German union of insurers will take place.
