Digital Acquisition: Opportunity area for Life Insurers

In less than a decade, digitization has irrevocably changed life insurance distribution. According to a Novarica report, an overwhelming 100% of L&A carriers say digital distribution is their top budget allocation priority  for 2021.Customer demand is at an all-time high for mortality protection, spurred by the pandemic. On the contrary, agents’ in-person client conversations dropped by 85% during the same period. Hence, carriers need to provide rich engagement to customers via integrated physical and digital channels. Insurers must empower agents with digital tools to provide a superior customer experience anytime, anywhere. According to our World Insurance Report 2021, more than 40% of agents and brokers recognize they lag in high responsiveness to customers, while 61% of agents and brokers feel highly challenged to convert leads. Agents are demanding carriers to help them improve remote relationship building, with 45% agents and brokers voicing the need for support from insurers in engaging effectively with customers. Insurers’ digital acquisition initiatives not only give policy seekers experience-led shopping options, but they can also boost a firm’s market share and profitability.
