Overview

Our intimate understanding of the insurance industry and the nature of the relationships between all stakeholders means that we can efficiently identify the issues and offer practical solutions.

Within this consolidated industry, participants are forced to continuously innovate and expand into alternate markets. Insurers are responding through new service and product offerings that benefit from new technologies and distribution channels.

The industry remains braced for further challenges including:

  • slowed capital markets
  • reduced investment returns
  • greater difficulty in pricing risk
  • an ageing population
  • significant regulatory intervention
  • increased finance sector competition.
