The economic crisis of 2007–2009 had a major negative impact on financial institutions in general. Health and life insurance industry continues to face growth challenges even six years after the economic crisis. Due to the challenges faced by health and life insurance industry, several companies in this industry have merged and some decided to get out of this business altogether. This study benchmarks 10 life and health insurance companies on the basis of return on equity, investment yield, and loss ratio for the year 2009 and 2014.
