Challenges Facing The Insurance Industry

The insurance industry has seen dramatic change over the past five years, due to the global credit crisis and large scale incidents around the world, such as Hurricane Katrina in the USA, the Tsunami and more recent flash flooding across the UK and mainland Europe. These have prompted record losses and claims, leaving the insurance sector with a number of pressing issues and key challenges.


Igloo and polar bears

Changes to risk management

The management of risk has changed dramatically in recent years.  This is partly due to the large scale natural disasters seen across the globe, from Hurricane Katrina to the flash flooding in the UK where hundreds of people have been forced out of their homes.  Alongside this, changes in crime statistics and the fluctuations in asset value in an uncertain financial environment have pushed insurance companies to change the way they manage risk

Balancing cost cutting with business growth

The insurance sector faces a difficult balancing act between cost cutting measures, to cope with the global downturn in the economy, without compromising the potential for growth and development.

A shortage of talent

Many insurance companies are faced with difficulties attracting and retaining talented professionals.

Sustaining profitability in the face of stringent new regulations

Tighter regulations are forcing insurance companies to transform their organisational processes in order to achieve compliance.  Very often these shake ups can compromise staff morale and productivity levels.

Tapping into emerging markets

The increased affluence of customers in emerging markets is creating the potential for huge growth in the insurance sector. The challenge is how to tap into this potential to ensure your company has a presence in these fast developing markets
