New Report Provides Essential Information on the Key Features Of the Life and Pensions Market in the Ten New EU Member Countries.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Life and Pensions Opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe to their offering

The enlargement of the European Union (EU) in 2004 has provided European financial services companies with access to ten new insurance markets, including eight countries from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Cyprus and Malta have now joined the world's largest free trade zone and financial services market.

For each country the report provides detailed facts and figures on the life insurance and pensions market. In addition we describe the regulatory environment and analyse the latest trends and developments in products, distribution channels and the competitive landscape.
