How Customers Purchase Term Assurance 2018

Summary
The attitudes, preferences, and behaviors of customers purchasing term assurance in the past 12 months differed depending on whether the policy was purchased to be linked to a mortgage or not. 89.2% of customers who purchased a non-mortgage-related term assurance policy had a mortgage. This highlights that the current mortgage-related products on offer may not be meeting the needs of their target market.

Non-mortgage-related term assurance customers are more confident in purchasing without advice than mortgage-related customers.More use price comparison sites to research before purchasing and more purchase direct from an insurer through the online space.

Meanwhile, Customers linking a policy to their mortgage are likely to be seeking professional advice through the mortgage process. Many customers also purchased their term assurance policy with advice, which may have been arranged at the same time as a mortgage.

It is harder to identify the trigger of customers not linking their policy to a mortgage.Many said there was no key trigger for their purchase.

However, growing old or having children did play a part and could be used as approaches to market these policies. Four in 10 term assurance customers are likely to consider using activity trackers in conjunction with their life insurance policy, which is a positive finding given industry developments in this space.
