Key Findings
- UK household insurance gross written premium (GWP) fell by 3.8% in 2015, hampered by tough underwriting
conditions in a competitive market. Home insurance premium rates are currently reported to be largely flat to
slightly negative across the UK as a whole.
- In spite of winter 2015 storms, home insurance remains profitable, with a 94.6% combined operating ratio (COR)
in 2015, compared to 93.4% in 2014. The sector has been propped up by several benign weather years and has
benefited from reserve releases.
However, concerns remain over pricing for severe weather events.
- The home insurance expense ratio fell in 2015 (-1.6 percentage points [pp]) as a result of a drop in commission
ratio and efficiency improvements. However, at 40.6% it remains relatively high compared to motor, and has been
adversely impacted in H1 2016 by the introduction of Flood Re.
- The rise of 'Generation Rent' presents a shifting landscape that is dampening overall market growth, and is
presenting home insurers with a customer demographic that has different needs and preferences not necessarily
catered to effectively by current services. Private renters now account for around 20% of dwellings, up from just
over 10% a decade ago.
Reasons To Buy
- Benchmark yourself against the rest of the market. Ensure you remain competitive as new innovations and
insurance models begin to enter the market.
- Be prepared for how regulation will impact the household insurance market over the next few years.
