Insurance Brokers in Italy
Databank Cerved Group, August 2012, Pages: 44
This report supplies information on the Insurance Brokers Italian market and its competitors: market trends, SWOT and key success factors analysis, major companies performance indicators (total turnover, sector specific turnover, market shares and export quotas), business prospects and trends.
Insurance brokers carry out brokerage activity on insurance policies for retail and corporate customers in the public and private sectors. They are registered under Section B of the Single Register of Insurance and Reinsurance Intermediaries (RUI), and act on behalf of the customer. They do not have authority to represent insurance or reinsurance companies as a result of a direct relationship with them and/ or through contracting agreements with agents that have been ratified by said companies according to article 55, paragraph 1, letter b) of ISVAP regulation no. 5/2006 and subsequent amendments.
Insurance companies pay commissions on the premiums brokered, and brokers' activity is segmented according to the specific branch of insurance into which these premiums fall. This is based on the branches identified in the upstream insurance market, with the main distinction being between Property & Casualty (P&C) and Life. Alternatively, the market can be segmented according to the client, distinguishing between corporate (companies, banks and other financial institutions, public authorities) and retail.
This report covers companies operating in the placement on the market of third-party insurance products:
- Purpose: intermediation between insurance companies that produce policies and the parties that require insurance coverage.
- Client groups: mostly corporate clients (companies, banks and other financial institutions, public bodies), and also to a lesser extent retail customers, who deal directly with the broker.
This report does not analyse companies specialising exclusively in reinsurance.
Segmentation is based on the volume of premiums brokered, with reference to the categories used in the insurance sector which are grouped into macro-segments based on similarities between the specific type of risk in question. The following breakdown has been adopted:
Property & Casualty:
- personal injury;
- land vehicles;
- transport (railway rolling stock, aircraft, ships (sea, lake, river and canal vessels), goods in transport, aircraft liability and liability for ships);
- fire and natural forces;
- other damage to property;
- motor vehicle liability;
- general liability;
- financial loss (credit, suretyship and other financial loss);
- other property and casualty (legal expenses, travel assistance).
- life assurance;
- investment funds;
- health insurance;
- funded pension schemes;
- pension funds.
Databank’s methodology for Competitors reports begins with a careful screening to identify the main organisations that are representative of a given sector. Several one-to-one interviews are then conducted with the selected organisations. Questionnaires are sent to all the leading companies on an annual basis. The information collected is then verified by an expert in the particular sector using a system of counterchecks to guarantee that the information is entirely reliable and consistent. The process is then completed using Cerved Group’s proprietary information about Italian enterprises. All Competitors reports also include details concerning the strategies and performances of the leading companies in each sector.
Wherever no specific source is indicated, the information published in these reports can be assumed to have been taken from Cerved Group’s proprietary information bank. Coverage of any sector in Competitors products may be used in company presentations or in training courses on the subject.
