IKEA thinks of everything!

pregnantSince 1 October IKEA Sweden offers pregnancy & child insurance to the 2.5 million IKEA Family Card holders. It’s a personal accident insurance, no guarantee to get pregnant or have (more) kids around, which would also benefit IKEA. The insurance was developed by IKANO, a subsidiary of IKEA. This financial institution is led by the 3 sons of IKEA founding father Ingvar Kamprad.

Worldwide selling of insurance policies could be IKEA’s next step. A fire and theft insurance, closer to IKEA’s core business, the logical next product. A graphic step-by-step walkthrough to your policy clauses is included.

The larger the group of policy holders, the easier risks can be insured against. Data analysis may be more useful for fraud detection than product development in the financial service industry.
