Partnering for growth in the insurance sector

Partnering for growth

Nearly 70 percent of insurance executives said that partnerships, not in-house efforts will characterize the future of innovation in their organization.

“There is no doubt in my mind that the future will be won on the basis of the alliances, partnerships and joint ventures formed by insurance companies today.” Sam Evans, Global Insurance Deal Advisory Lead Partner

Increased competitive pressure, new regulations, evolving customer demands and new technologies are creating unprecedented change in the insurance sector. At the same time, insurers are increasingly starting to realize that their current organizational structure and culture may not be conducive to achieving the type of real, sustainable and value-creating change and innovation needed to compete over the long term. New models, new ideas and new partners must be found.

While there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to partnering for growth, in our new report, The Power of Alliances we explore three areas where insurers have been particularly active: bancassurance, Financial Technology (FinTech) and digital or non-traditional distribution channels. In each of these three areas we offer practical insights and lessons to help insurers create more sustainable and value-driven partnerships and alliances.
