How Customers Purchase Critical Illness Insurance 2018

Summary

Critical illness insurance pays out an insured lump sum tax-free in the event of the insured being diagnosed with a listed specific illness or medical condition within the cover term. Traditionally only one payout is made, on a flat basis of having a specified problem, although the market has made strong moves towards products and claims based on the severity of a condition as medicine and treatments advance. Available as a standalone product, critical illness is also bolted on to other life products such as term assurance, which is referred to as with-rider. Payouts are normally only given once and in a lump sum. Underwriting is based on a checklist of conditions and their degree of advancement, so policies can be specific and individual risk can be measured.

This report explores the attitudes, behaviors, and preferences of customers who purchased a critical illness policy in the last 12 months. It explores distribution and the purchasing journey, policy purchase triggers, the financial concerns of customers, and brand selection. It also sizes the critical insurance market using Association of British Insurers data.

Scope

– The majority of critical illness policies are sold as a rider with a life insurance policy.
– A quarter of customers seek advice from an insurance broker or independent financial advisor before purchasing a critical illness policy.
– A quarter of critical illness customers purchased a policy after buying a house.

Reasons to buy

– Improve customer engagement by recognizing what is most important to them and how insurers can adapt their products and services to meet their needs.
– Discover which providers lead the way in the critical illness space.

UK Commercial Property Insurance: Market Dynamics & Opportunities 2019 Summary The commercial property insurance market saw stable gross written premiums (GWP) growth again in 2018. The market remains competitive, with the leading players retaining similar shares year on year. This keeps premium rates at stubbornly low levels. Profitability remains significantly affected by weather conditions, and a sharp rise in claims at the beginning of 2018 forced a competitive market to harden rates, resulting in the worst profitability results in 12 years.
