Eastbridge releases new report on takeover business and trends in the voluntary market.

AVON, CONNECTICUT, USA (June 18, 2015)

Takeover business is on the rise in the voluntary/worksite market. According to Eastbridge’s 2014 U.S. Voluntary/Worksite Sales Report, takeovers as a percent of new business annualized premium (NBAP) have increased from 12 percent in 2006 to 51 percent in 2014. For the purposes of this report, a takeover is defined as one carrier replacing another carrier in an account with a similar product. This phenomenon has been common in the group market for years but, as noted by the percentages cited above, has not been common in the voluntary market until recently. The increase in takeover sales will inevitably create changes and concerns for the market.

The objective of the 2015 Takeovers and the Voluntary Market Spotlight™ Report is to provide comparative data on takeover business and trends experienced by voluntary carriers. The study provides data on:

  • Changes in the takeover business volume in the last three years
  • Anticipated takeover volume in the next three to five years
  • Takeover business approach and preferences
  • Takeover practices by carrier including matching benefits and rates and special underwriting guidelines
  • Future trends and concerns about takeover business

The cost of the report is $2,000. To purchase, call (860) 676-9633 or email info@eastbridge.com.
