Industry Panel Examines the Future of Auto Insurance Distribution in the United States in a Best's Review Webinar

OLDWICK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

More than 60% of auto insurance policies in the UK are purchased online, but not from insurance carriers. In less than a decade, insurance aggregators have become the dominant distribution channel for auto insurance in the UK. As aggregators are starting to establish a foothold in the US, will the market here follow a similar pattern?

In a webinar, set for Tuesday, December 10, at 11 a.m. Eastern Time, a panel of experts will examine this topic and provide insight into questions such as:

  • What is an insurance aggregator vs. lead aggregator?
  • What drove the phenomenal success of aggregators in the UK?
  • Will structural differences hinder this channel in the US?
  • How will the entry of aggregators alter the US distribution mix over the next decade?
  • What should insurers and agents do to be on the forefront of these changes in auto insurance distribution?
