The High Council of Insurance, Iran’s main insurance authority gave the green light to two new insurance companies last week -- Pars Reinsurance Company and Charisma Life Insurance Company.
Pars Reinsurance Company, affiliated with Parsian Financial Group, is the fourth reinsurance company in the country of 83 million people, raising hopes for improving competitiveness in the reinsurance sector.
