According to a survey by the Portuguese Insurance Association (APS), Leiria was the district with the most claims reported, but claims involving greater losses were reported in the districts of Faro and Aveiro.

Almost all of the reported losses relate to multi-risk insurance, both commercial and industrial (49%) and housing (37%).

“The situation that the country has gone through recently, and the increasing frequency of the climatic events that are at its origin, reinforce the importance of insurance as an element of mitigating the losses suffered and a factor of stability in the lives of people and companies”, said the president of APS, José Galamba de Oliveira.
