Ascoma Mauritania

Since 2006, Ascoma Mauritania, a major local player in insurance and reinsurance brokerage, has provided its corporate and individual clients with analysis, advice, insurance policy placement and claims management services.

The country in a nutshell

  • Population: 3.8 million (2017)
  • Area: 1,030,700 km2
  • GNP: $4.74 billion (2016)
  • Rate of growth: 1.7% (2016)

Mauritanian insurance market

Mauritania's economic growth is mainly based on mining exports. The distribution of income is unequal and unemployment is very high (around 10%). The insurance sector is currently undergoing tremendous change. It is expected to play a key role in the future national financial market (in view of a Nouakchott Stock Exchange) and to contribute to tackling the issue of employment. The reform also aims at rehabilitating the image of insurance among insured Mauritanians and foreign reinsurance companies. In this context, around fifteen national companies and two foreign brokers operate in the market. With an annual turnover of approximately $6 million, the insurance market is considered relatively modest but continues to register the arrival of new players.
