Highlights

The global financial crisis has had an impact on all consumers and their attitudes and motivations for buying insurance. In this challenging environment it is no longer sufficient to react to consumer behaviors, rather insurers need to understand the trends & influences behind insurance purchasing decisions.

An obvious strategy for growth hungry insurers is to establish operations in rapidly expanding markets where demographics and economic conditions favor growth the most. This has been the strategy of a few insurers in recent years, with mixed results.

The wave of consumers, across all markets, streamlining lifestyles has had direct implications for insurance markets. Policyholders lowering the level or cutting the features of their policies to cut costs. This behavior has been relatively constant as most economies have exited the recession since 2009, though it is uneven across product type.

Reasons to Purchase
