United Kingdom (UK) Employers Liability Insurance - Market Dynamics and Opportunities 2020
GWP in the employers' liability market fell to £1,108m in 2019, although insurers managed to retain strong profits as claims costs remained low. This market is more closely aligned to developments in the UK economy compared to other insurance lines. This is problematic for the sector, as the UK is likely headed towards a recession following the severe impact of COVID-19, which brought the economy to a standstill for much of 2020 and continuing into 2021. The unemployment rate in the UK is set to soar as government support such as the furlough scheme comes to an end. The market is directly reliant on the number of businesses and employees in the UK, so this will have a negative impact on premiums. Insurers may have the ability to raise premiums given the significant cuts seen in 2020, and the curtailing of claims in recent years means they may be able to endure a tough 2021.
This report tracks the health and shape of the employers' liability market - taking into account market size, profitability, performance ratios, and the claims environment. The UK's economic growth, business landscape, COVID-19, and the post-Brexit environment are all taken into consideration to build a full picture of this space.
