Willis Towers Watson's fast growing claims benchmarking service celebrates milestone, reaching 45% of UK motor market in four months
The market share of Willis Towers Watson’s Claim Metrics has grown rapidly since its launch in November 2018, now representing a total claims spend of £12.5bn.
Claim Metrics is a new benchmarking solution to help personal lines insurers improve claims handling and profitability, is now benchmarking over £12.5bn of motor claims spend and represents over 45% of the UK motor market. Since its launch in November 2018, the claims service has benefited from a benchmarking pool that has grown rapidly due to strong market support.
Claim Metrics, supported by Willis Towers Watson’s claims knowledge, analytical skills and insurance and technology expertise, provides claims leaders with an insurance-focused tool for identifying performance improvements, and offers underwriters, pricing teams, actuaries and senior management insights into profitability drivers and inflation trends.
Tom Helm, head of Claims Consulting at Willis Towers Watson comments “For Claim Metrics to have attracted such a significant claims spend in such a short space of time is exciting. As new members continue to join the benchmarking service, including a number of the UK’s biggest motor insurers, users are directly benefiting from this rapid growth as the service’s capability to generate highly accurate performance assessments becomes ever more sophisticated.
With the pricing environment remaining so highly competitive and the ongoing pressures coming through from claims inflation, Claim Metrics provides participants with reliable and timely outputs to compare their inflationary trends against the market. The benchmarks also help companies to identify where they can be more proactive and effective in their claims management strategies, as well as deliver their customers a faster and more efficient claims service.”
Claim Metrics, which provides independent validation and deep analysis on the drivers of change across the spectrum of small to large loss motor and household claims, includes the following performance-enhancing features:
-Dynamic dashboard: Claim Metrics provides insurers with an interactive dashboard to analyse and compare their claims performance across a broad array of operational and financial metrics. Results are refreshed every six months to deliver a contemporary view of performance and closely track claims inflation.
-Smart segmentation: Insurers can select data factors which adjust the benchmarks to mirror their business footprint, helping claims, pricing and underwriting teams to understand their own performance with greater accuracy.
-Trend analysis: Analyses are based on over five years of granular data and results presented by either settled claim, underwriting or accident year, as well as month-on-month development patterns. This enables insurers to evaluate the results aligned to their own internal approach, offering invaluable insight into market trends.
Helm added “Data and analytics have transformed many areas of the insurance industry, but it has been slower to adapt than other financial services, such as banking and retail. This is changing as the claims process in the insurance market finds itself increasingly under the spotlight, with more insurers recognising claims as an investment opportunity to help gain competitive advantage, market differentiation and increased customer loyalty.”
