Despite prolonged political instability, poor infrastructure, endemic corruption, insufficient power supplies, and slow implementation of economic reforms Bangladesh's economy has grown by approximately 6 percent annually for two decades. In this case, the insurance companies of Bangladesh have been keeping a significant role for a long since. Considering the enhancement of the development of insurance sectors, different institutes and academics have been established.
