UK General investigates the future of the schemes market
UK General Insurance, the specialist and niche personal lines insurance provider has teamed up with Insurance Times to survey brokers’ attitudes towards the current and future UK schemes market.
The survey is the industry’s most comprehensive insight into schemes and it is the fourth year that UK General, that is synonymous with the schemes market, has undertaken it.
The survey is open to all UK brokers and will investigate their attitudes towards current schemes market conditions and explore potential areas of growth and where brokers believe scheme opportunities lie within the industry.
UK General’s 2015 schemes survey revealed 69% of brokers believed there was a significant appetite towards trading in the schemes market while 87% thought price was the most important factor for customers. 59% of brokers’ transacted business on their websites and on the telephone compared against 13% via aggregators.
Karen Beales, managing director at UK General, said: “We are delighted to partner Insurance Times for this important survey, and encourage all brokers to participate, even those who don’t currently write schemes business.”
The survey is open to fully authorised UK based insurance brokers only and is open for entry until Friday 25 March 2016.
