MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. The Russian Central Bank estimates that about 100 Russian insurance companies are currently in the high-risk category, Deputy Director of the Central Bank Nikolay Pecheliev said on Wednesday.
"The reasons are different. Mainly this is due to the fact that companies lose assets, that is - companies are not able to deal with their liabilities," Pecheliev said.
According to Pecheliev, due to the fictitious assets and non-compliance with insurance legislation 23 companies and 5 brokers have already left the insurance market in the Q1 of 2016. Some of them voluntarily handed over the license to the Central Bank, hoping to avoid responsibility, Pecheliev added.
