Chiffres de l’assurance vie 2018 : la collecte nette s’élève à 22,4 milliards d’euros, un résultat annuel encourageant  en dépit d’un mois de décembre négatif

In an uncertain economic and financial climate, net subscriptions for life insurance totalled €22.4 billion in 2018, a very clear increase as compared with 2017 (€8.3 billion).

Having provided support of almost €11 billion to equity financing over the year, the highest level since 2007, French insurance has played a full role in financing businesses and supporting productive investment.

This performance was achieved notwithstanding a slow month in December (-€0.6 billion, the only negative month in 2018), notably as a result of a fall in investment in unit-linked products due to the concern of savers faced with market volatility (€0.2 billion in December 2018 compared with €2.1 billion in December 2017).
