Nigel Bradshaw – Will Big Data Simplify or Complicate Protection Applications? – MPAF69

A recent recurring topic on the MPAF Podcast is the complicated protection underwriting process.

In this episode I talk to Nigel Bradshaw and we debate whether Big Data could make underwriting protection applications simpler.

Or whether it might make it more complicated.

That’s all right here in Episode 69 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

Andrew Wibberley on Risk, Post Codes and Sleepwalking into Preferred Lives Underwriting – MPAF66

Are cheap protection prices in the UK an illusion?

Each provider fights to appear competitive on comparison sites, but one in four or more applicants now face extra premiums after underwriting.

Is that fair?

In the episode I talk to Andrew Wibberley, an underwriting expert with a provider a reinsurance pedigree.

We discuss whether we have sleepwalked into preferred lives underwriting and how far we can take this before it becomes unreasonable. We debate using post codes and whether that will shave more off the headline rate but leave even more people open to paying higher premiums than they were expecting.

That’s all right here in Episode 66 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

Stealing with Glee, Video Streaming and Doubling Protection Commission – MPAF65

In this episode I talk about Stealing with Glee, Video Streaming, and whether we should double protection commission.

This week it’s just me and the mic, riffing on some of the subjects I’ve written about recently.

  • Stealing with Glee – how a borrowed idea could reveal the future of the UK protection market
  • Video Streaming – how you could use Periscope, Meerkat or Blab to engage with your clients
  • Doubling Protection Commission – would this help to grow the UK protection market?

That’s all right here in Episode 65 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.
