Germans trust friends while Britons seek independent advice on life and pensions
Faster provision of information and achieving single customer view are goals for success
Datamonitor
May 2007 United Kingdom, Germany Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, European Union members, Advisers
A survey of the UK and German life insurance and pensions markets, conducted by Datamonitor and commissioned by IBM, has revealed discord between consumer preference, the power held by Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) and insurance providers’ customer retention strategies, including admissions that customers take "second place". The research was conducted among 200 consumers, eight life insurance providers and 14 IFAs/brokers divided equally across the two countries. 41%, a majority of German consumers, are closer to their life and pensions provider because they buy direct; however, in the UK, 40% of consumers buy these products through their workplace. IFAs own a large share of the market in both countries.

This niche sector has the potential to treble its size within the next five years, but in spite of this obvious attractiveness, mainstream lenders have been slow to seize the opportunity. Indeed, it would seem that prospective entrants are waiting for the market to pick up before making a move. While it is a sensible approach, these lenders face the risk of missing the boat.
