NEW YORK, February 28, 2019 –The 2019 Insurance Fact Book, a digital publication offering the latest data on U.S. and global insurance markets is available effective today, according to the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.).

“Insurance drives economic growth.  It provides stability against risks.  It encourages resilience. Recent disasters have demonstrated the vital role the industry plays in recovery—and that without insurance, the impact on individuals, businesses and communities can be devastating,” wrote Sean Kevelighan, Chief Executive Officer, I.I.I., in his introductory letter to the 2019 Insurance Fact Book.
