|Broker Distribution Insight: Which Insurers Lead the Way?|
|Published: May 16, 2018||Content info: 28 Pages||
Broker servicing in the commercial insurance space is dominated by a select few insurers that have continually surpassed their competitors in most performance areas. Aviva, Allianz, and AXA made up the top three in all but one of the 10 categories when brokers were asked to name the insurer they perceived as performing the best across a number of different elements.
Aviva was the standout performer across the majority of categories, while the latter two frequently competed for second place. The only categories in which Aviva is pipped to first place is in its speed of response to client queries/quotes, where Allianz is perceived to excel.Social media appears to be an area that is evenly contested among insurance providers in the commercial broker space, due to it being in a nascent stage. The vast majority of responses in this category were in the "don't know" category, which suggests there is an opportunity for lesser-known insurers to establish themselves in this area.
Aviva's online support is the group's strongest differentiator, closely followed by its extranet sites and e-trading capability. The insurer's performance in each of these respective areas highlights its comprehensive online channel and its commitment to improving its services via the use of digital channels.
The insurer continues to invest in its digital side and announced a partnership with blockchain start-up Luther Systems in 2017. Also, it aims to improve the efficiency and transparency of management systems.
