David Heath, Chair of IFoA’s Policy and Public Affairs Board:
“Insurance is designed to offer protection to individuals and businesses and it is important that the industry innovates and evolves to address changing needs. But it must seek to do so in a way that is fair and includes those needing protection the most.”
These issues will be explored through IFoA’s Inclusive Insurance Bulletin Series. Through the series, the IFoA will present a broad perspective on this issue, and has invited contributions from a range of important voices in the debate including Citizens Advice and the Social Market Foundation.
Drivers of Change, the first bulletin in the series, explores the societal, technological and macroeconomic drivers that are creating the need for change, and the impact they are having. The second and third bulletin in the series will be released later in 2020.
The second bulletin will explore the response from the industry, including interventions that have been implemented or proposed. The third will take an in-depth look at the important role that insurance plays in society, ensuring all can be empowered through the protection it affords.
