The Quarterly Life Insurance Performance Statistics publication provides industry aggregate summaries of financial performance, financial position, solvency, capital adequacy and management capital, as well as details of the performance of individual product groups.
This publication is more detailed than the previously published Life Insurance Trends (Trends). The data provided is not directly comparable to Trends due to the change in prudential reporting framework that took effect on 1 January 2008.
The publication is available in three versions: Adobe PDF for printing (containing data for the most recent periods), Microsoft Excel (containing a complete time series since June 2008 of data included in the PDF version), and a database version (in a Microsoft Excel file) which contains additional statistics and can be used for further analysis.

In developing the content of this new publication APRA has closely considered the detail contained in the previous publication and has consulted with both industry participants and other interested parties on the data to be published.
Where available and appropriate, aggregates are provided at the following levels:
- total industry;
- shareholders’ fund;
- total statutory fund;
- investment linked and non-investment linked fund; and
- class of business (i.e. superannuation and ordinary business).
Further issues of this publication will include short editorial information on key industry trends and analysis of key data.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions for improvement.
