Where does the Insurance Industry stand today?

GWP collection stood at $12Bn, majorly led by growth in non-life insurance products of Health and Motor. Insurance of Persons and Fund Accumulation contributed 28% to total GWP collection. While UAE is ahead among the peer GCC countries in terms of insurance penetration of 2.9%, it still lags behind the average insurance penetration of emerging countries which stands at 3.2% and Global average of 6.1%. Mandatory insurance requirements of Motor across UAE coupled with Health Insurance in Abu Dhabi and Dubai has contributed to raising awareness among people to protect their risks.

Traditional Distribution Channels & Viability of Aggregator led Online Model

Challenging the established dominance of Brokers, Banks, and Agents is not easy for Aggregators as incumbents generate ~99% of the total premium collection in 2018, as per the data released by the Insurance Authority of UAE. However, aggregators are stepping up due to the changing customer preferences towards online, price comparison led to buying behavior.  Relying on commission-driven income and a high one-time cost of technology building for offering multiple banking products, aggregator’s model is highly scalable to peer GCC countries, thereby ensuring sustainable growth by becoming a one-stop solution provider.

Are aggregators here to stay?

Primarily, targeting kin to commodity ‘Motor Insurance’ products, aggregators have built-in AI-driven algorithms and platforms capable of generating quotes within a minute and delivering policies in the e-mail within 60 minutes. This has allowed customers to get away with the tedious process of submitting documents offline and foster confidence owing to a lack of information asymmetry. Ken Research believes online insurance could cannibalize the share of brokers and banks and contribute >10% of total GWP collection by 2024.
