Critical Illness Marathons Claims Stats and Platinum Plating Bureaucracy – MPAF43

Has the critical “illness race” become a marathon?

What use are great claims statistics if no one knows about them?

Why do we platinum plate compliance and other bureaucracies to the extent it strangles growth?

Having been asked to schedule some recent interviews into specific times I find myself without one to publish this week.

So it’s:

Just Me and the Mic

where I get these subjects off my chest and invite your comments and thoughts.

That’s all right here in episode 43 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

John Ritchie on Ellipse Auto Enrolement and Workplace Sick Pay – MPAF 38

Can individual protection providers learn from group protection providers?

Until recently many would have said no. But with individual sales down eyes are turning to innovations in group risk. Particularly digital solutions.

My guest today is Chief Executive of Ellipse, a digital group risk insurer looking to simplify processes to make employer sponsored schemes more attractive.

Hear John talk about how we must move away from “income protection” to “workplace sick pay”.

Listen to his views on pension auto enrolment and whether we should be looking to introduce a similar approach for protection.

And can individual protection providers learn anything from group developments?

That’s all right here in episode 38 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

John Ritchie on Ellipse Auto Enrolement and Workplace Sick Pay

Who is John Ritchie?

John is CEO of Ellipse, a digital group risk insurer.

He’s worked in the group risk sector for over 20 years primarily as a reinsurer and insurer and now, with Ellipse where he has the chance to run a group risk insurer that makes use of available technology to deliver a high quality service at sustainably competitive pricing.

He thinks that although the Group Sector can be proud of the role it plays in providing life and disability cover to millions of people in the UK, its customers deserve better service and investment in the underlying processes is long overdue.

The Only Hope for Protection Market growth is the Social Financial Adviser – MPAF35

Do you think that existing product providers are going to grow the adviser protection market?

I asked that question at the recent Financial Services Expo Event in Glasgow and I thought I’d ask it again on today’s podcast.

I’ve had to postpone the podcast interview I had scheduled for this week. Rather than take a week off I thought I would try a different approach.

Just Me and the Mic.

So do I think that existing product providers are going to grow the adviser protection market?

In the short-term. No.

I believe that the only hope for protection market growth is the “social” financial adviser.

I explain why in episode 35 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.
