Electronic trading in the UK life and pensions industry
Focus Solutions
May 2004 United Kingdom Technology & Systems
The purpose of this report is to give a realistic representation of the penetration and growth of electronic trading within the life and pensions industry and to provide a platform for providers to benchmark their own services. In 2001, insurers predicted that by 2006 over 80% of their new business would be transacted electronically. 2003 is the halfway review point and the research shows that some 60% of insurers are now transacting new business electronically.

IFAs set to hold their own despite new regulations
A poll of IFA firms
Focus Solutions
Feb 2003 United Kingdom Advisers
According to this research, more than two thirds (67%) of Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) are unhappy to sell only the products of a specific set of providers, this despite the fact that many IFA firms and their Registered Individuals (RIs) are set to change their independent status, becoming ‘multi tied’ to the handful of providers that have financial stakes in them, now that ‘better than best’ rules are being scrapped.
