Financial resilience in the long-term savings journey

The last two years have demonstrated the value of having assets or insurance to rely upon when experiencing life events from redundancy to bereavement. While savings have increased for many, gaps in the population’s financial resilience have been exposed and exacerbated. Ahead of the ABI’s Annual Conference covering this issue, we look at the current picture of financial resilience and how it should be taken into account in policy on pensions, advice & guidance.

In or out? Sharing health data in Dragon’s Den

Patient-controlled medical records are the direction of travel, set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. Clearly there are benefits for insurers, but what’s in it for the customer? Does this have the potential to revolutionise the insurance industry? Will a new relationship of trust and value sharing be born? To answer some of these questions, the ABI are presenting our very own version of Dragon’s Den. This promises to be a trial by fire, forging innovative new ideas and starting to shape our industry’s vision of the future. But are you ‘in’ or ‘out’?

Good COP, Bad COP? Insurers and the call to arms against climate change

COP 26 had an air of energy, motivation and urgency about it that inspires cautious optimism, yet the scale of the challenge is daunting. Government policy, regulation and customer demands means that joining the race to net zero is no longer optional and insurers have a key role to play in both adaptation and mitigation. One of these roles is as investors in the transition: Solvency II and climate change will be the twin themes of our prudential regulation session at the ABI’s annual conference next year, which will be a timely opportunity to debate reform and the government’s investment objectives.

Hardening markets across many product lines is a key challenge taking up significant attention across the general insurance market.
