  • Be customer-centric: understand exactly what consumers want and how they want to interact with you then align your products and service processes to deliver this.
  • Select the right insurance provider: one that can not only offer a product, but value enhancing services – marketing, compliance and technology platforms – which enable you to create the great experience your consumers demand.
  • Find new ways to add value: convenience is as important as price for many people.
  • Get personal: introduce personalisation into your services and products to make consumers feel they are unique and special.
  • Take a lead from other industries: pick up on best practice wherever you see it and use it to gain a competitive edge.
  • Think like an innovator: why does a consumer need to buy a household policy, and a motor policy, and a GAP policy, and travel policy, and a pet policy? Shouldn’t the consumer be able to access one cover that is tailored to them with one premium for all their needs?
