The cost of Personal Insurance has experienced an upward trend, and several factors play a role in this shift: Inflationary Influences:
Inflation affects the cost of goods and services across the board, including repairs, replacements, and settlements. This has created hard market conditions throughout the insurance industry, as insurance companies respond by limiting capacity and increasing rates countrywide to keep up with the rising cost of living.
Heightened Frequency and Severity of Claims: Unexpected events, from severe weather conditions to accidents, have led to a higher number of insurance claims, often with more significant financial implications. The insurance companies’ commitment to providing prompt and fair compensation factors these changes into their pricing structure. The companies have also tightened their underwriting guidelines restricting business they may have accepted in the past.
Evolving Risk Landscape: The world is changing rapidly, bringing new risks to the forefront. The rise of cyber threats and other emerging exposures such as the pandemic-era has led to more complex risk assessments and additional coverage options.
