Access to Insurance – are we doing enough to offer cover to those who need it most?

The protection industry has seen year on year growth in recent years, but are we reaching those who really need cover the most?  Alan and Zoe will pick up on the industry focus on Access to Insurance and the progress being made to signpost to and offer appropriate cover for those who struggle to access insurance.  Using case studies from the UK and around the world, Alan and Zoe will consider the opportunities for those who think differently and the threats to our industry if we don’t respond.
