Abstract

In an international context, Romania had a special position, with both positive and negative aspects in its evolution. Even during a crisis period, starting with 2008, Romania life insurance penetration rate had a continuous growing trend, but it has lagged behind other countries,from Europe or from other continents. The statistics for Romania proved that more steps must be done, primarily in terms of people’s mentality to recognize the usefulness of this sector. Based on our field research of 870 respondents in a nationally representative statistical survey of urban environment in Romania, a binary logit model identified the age, the education level, income per capita and gender as predictors for the probability a life insurance policy to be chosen against an optional private pension. Different result between regions suggests as adequate a regional approach in future management plans regarding life insurance penetration.
