UK Jewellery and Watch Insurance: Market Dynamics, Affinities and Partnerships is a report investigating the market for jewellery and watch insurance in the UK. Key features include: an outline of market drivers and the value, growth and segmentation of the market from 2010 to 2014; quantification and commentary concerning the segmentation of policies in force by distribution channels used to buy them in 2014; estimates for underwriter market shares in 2014; a comprehensive listing of major affinity and partnership marketing relationships visible at the time of the research in 2015 for these types of policy; and forecasts for the value of the market up to 2018.

In this report, the type of cover in scope is defined as stand-alone insurance covering jewellery and watches bought by consumers either at the point of sale or retrospectively. The report does not analyse cover for jewellery or watches acquired as part of household insurance nor does it include cover bought by jewellers for their own business risks. Moreover, extended warranty cover for smartwatches also falls outside of the scope of this report.

In keeping with 19 other studies in this series, research processes and sources used to create it include the following: primary interviews with leading brokers, underwriters and affinity / corporate partners active in this field; in-house data drawn from other Finaccord reports; and comprehensive analysis of secondary information from a diverse range of data sources including UK government departments and financial regulators, relevant lifestyle organisations and trade associations, specialist publications and published disclosures by competitors active in the market.
