How Much Money Do Insurance Companies Make?

I’ve given a lot of attention in these guides to the insurance industry. The careful reader will note a common thread, well known to Baltimore personal injury and accident lawyers- insurance companies make an enormous amount of money. I’ve highlighted the specific recent financial gains of the some nation’s 10 largest property casualty insurers in separate guides. What I tend to see in some commentators and analysts is a detailed discussion of how the profit is generated an how the reality might differ from the perception- not that amazing amount of money made itself. 

Here is a staggering statistic about the industry as a whole. According to the Insurance Information Institute1

The insurance industry takes in 1 trillion dollars in net premiums annually.

Let’s put that in perspective. According to the American Association for Justice, if the insurance industry were a separate country, it would have a bigger economy than every other country on the planet, except the two largest, the U.S and Japan.2
