Scott Eason, Partner and Head of Insurance Consulting, talks about the mounting pressure and changes on the UK life insurance market.
More than half of UK life insurance companies (59%) will spend more on actuarial consultants in the next year. However, inherent weaknesses in the procurement process presents obstacles to achieving better outcomes and value for money.
According to a new report, ‘Perspectives on Value’, spending on consultants by insurance companies is expected to rise over the coming year. The report cites complexity and structural challenges as the primary drivers behind the forecasted increase.
