Campaigns and issues

Insurance and long-term savings products play a significant part in a very wide range of issues, from insuring one person’s car to protecting international fleets; from covering one historic house to preparing for cyber threats of the future.

As well as representing member firms, the ABI works to help inform consumers and to support the industry in navigating a large number of challenges and opportunities.  

Here are just some of the live issues the industry is involved with at the moment.
