Summary, Conclusion And Recommendation
It is important to ascertain that the objective of this study was to ascertain the impact of motor insurance policy on the growth and development of the economy.
In the preceding chapter, the relevant data collected for this study were presented, critically analyzed and appropriate interpretation given. In this chapter, certain recommendations made which in the opinion of the researcher will be of benefits in addressing the challenges of motor insurance policy and Nigeria’s economic growth.
Modifying the fixed-effect model of Marijuana et al. (2009) and co-integration estimation technique, we examined the impact of motor insurance policy on the growth and development of Nigeria’s economy, number of insurance companies as well as total insurance Investment in addition to a control variable of inflation rate contribute to economic growth of Nigeria using a range of time. According to the results, insurance sector development promotes economic growth of Nigeria. Thus, function of insurance companies – providing means of risk management and performing mobilization and allocation of resources (Marijuana et al., 2009) – are important for economic growth. As increase in number of insurance companies contribute to economic growth according to the result, it is suggestive for insurance sector policy maker to implement the policies that are going to provide more insurance companies with high competitive mind and increasing efficiency in the insurance industry.
This study has succeeded in establishing that a direct or positive relationship exists between investment in motor insurance and economic growth in Nigeria. This means that building a formidable insurance industry in the country would immensely boost the country’s economic growth. Consequently, the federal government should use policy actions to protect both the insurers and the insured in the country; encourage people to patronize insurance companies as well as encourage insurance companies to always pay genuine claims promptly at the occurrence of the event insured against. This will encourage more people to buy insurance, thereby increase premium income and provide investible funds which can be directed into lucrative investments for increased capital formation and productivity.
Haven completed the study, the researcher recommends that adequate regulation should be targeted at providing institutional improvements, especially in risk management and product development of insurance companies. The causal relationship between economic growth and insurance development of Nigeria is limited and not direct. This is because the influence of insurance market development in performing the role of intermediation is tempered by some negative factors in Nigeria. These factors can be identified as low per capita income, lack of orientation of the importance of insurance, cultural values undermining the popularity of insurance and adequate regulatory framework for insurance industry in Nigeria.
