1. Analysis of the level of development of us insurance relations

1.1 the US Economy

The largest and one of the most diversified national economies in the world is the us economy. It is the engine of the world economy.

The United States is an advanced power with great production power and huge development potential. The domestic American market is huge: it absorbs almost 90% of all domestic production and, in addition, a significant part of the products created in other countries, including developing ones. Consequently, the American economy is quite self-sufficient. It is characterized by a large-scale focus on NTP and advanced technology, is a real base for the political and military" superpower " of the country, which has to be considered by all other countries, including Russia.[1]

The United States is the only country in the world whose economy emerged from world war II much stronger. In the first postwar decades, the leading position of the United States in the world economy (by a wide margin from competitors) became indisputable.

The main feature of the American economy is not that it has the largest production potential in the world and produces the largest volume of goods and services, but that it leads in the field of NTP, the introduction of its results into production, in the export of licenses for its inventions, latest developments and discoveries. This creates the effect of dependence of other countries on the United States in the field of science and technology. [2]

Having a huge superiority over other countries in its innovation potential, the United States receives an innovation rent-a natural result of the monopoly on new knowledge and the ability to translate it into new products, taking into account the growing demand for it.

As for American TNCs, their enterprises abroad provide production of goods and services in the amount of more than 4 trillion. doll. Per year, which is almost 40% of US GDP and has a huge impact on the economies of the countries where these enterprises operate. No wonder they say that today there are two American economies: one - in the United States, the other-in other countries.

The United States ranks first in the world in terms of industrial production, has a highly efficient agriculture.

The U.S. industry consumes about a third of the raw materials that are mined worldwide, has the largest market for machinery and equipment. Great exports of us engineering products, which have gained recognition around the world.[3]

1.2 US Insurance market

In the United States, the first insurers, as independent legal entities established for insurance purposes, appeared in 1720. The period of initial development of the United States in the field of insurance is associated with the emergence of a large number of one-day companies, becoming bankrupt and sowing panic among consumers. This led to the Parliament's decision to monopolize insurance operations for corporate interests by two insurers, the London Assurance Corporation and the Royal Exchange Assurance Corporation, which carry out insurance operations in the US to this day. To a large extent at that time the insurance on the North American continent was carried out by branches and branches of insurers from the UK. However, the needs determined by the economic growth of the national economy led to the creation of national insurers. In 1752, B. Franklin co-founded one of the first fire insurance companies in Philadelphia – The Philadelphia Contribution. The first insurance company established in the form of a joint-stock company appeared in 1794, the first specialized life insurance company was established in 1759. [4]

The insurance business of the USA differs in huge scope and confidently leads in the world market of insurance on all possible indicators .

American insurance monopolies control about 50% of the insurance market of developed countries. In the USA there are about 9 thousand companies of property insurance and about 2 thousand companies engaged in life and health insurance. The assets of all companies are about 2.5 trillion. dollars'. On average, the assets of one company are 950 million dollars, and the 12 largest companies account for 60 billion dollars.[5]

There are two types of insurance companies in the United States: mutual insurance companies and joint stock companies. State insurance firms do not exist. Shares of joint-stock companies can be purchased by both individuals and legal entities.

Insurance companies carry out three types of insurance:

1) commercial (wide range);

2) personal (insurance of buildings, cars and other property of citizens);

3) bekifity (life and health insurance, medical, pensions, savings, etc.).

U.S. insurers sit on 27 out of every 100 boards of Directors of American industrial corporations. Ahead of insurance companies in this regard-only commercial and investment banks.

The organizational basis of American insurance companies are joint stock companies and mutual insurance companies. There is an Institute of underwriters and insurance brokers-insurance agents or independent brokerage firms.

The largest insurance companies are financial conglomerates: through subsidiaries, they can, in addition to insurance, provide loans and loans, organize check service for customers, issue settlement credit cards, conduct transactions with real estate, securities, manage property and capital on behalf of customers.

Insurance in the United States is divided into two branches: life insurance and other types of insurance. The largest insurer in the United States is StateFarmGroup, with its divisions accounting for 18% of the car insurance market and 23% of life insurance, and 12% of the market as a whole. This figure is twice the market share of the company "AllstateInsuranceGroup", which occupies the 2nd place. AmericanInsuranceGroup (AIG) accounts for approximately 4% of the other insurance market.

AIG ranks second in the world for property and casualty insurance. AIG has existed since 1919 and is a holding company controlling 44 subsidiaries in various countries of the world. All companies are United in 6 branches. In addition to insurance and reinsurance in the scope of activities of the company include financial services, retirement savings and asset management.[6]

One of the leading widely diversified insurance companies in the United States, SIGNA was founded in 1982. The main interests of the Corporation are related to property and liability insurance. A number of subsidiaries are engaged in brokerage operations, pension and personal insurance. They operate in 160 countries. CIGNA Corporation is one of the pioneers in the use of computer technology in international insurance operations, on the basis of which an automated system "Meridian" has been developed and implemented in many countries, allowing to significantly simplify and automate the registration of insurance cases and account management. [7]
