With the growth in insurance knowledge and the availability of information and online services SMEs are beginning to choose different routes to purchase their insurance other than the traditional broker route.
Brokers service the majority of SMEs with 57.5% of those surveyed purchasing through this route. SMEs buying directly from an insurer are growing in strength and now account for 29.6%, with banks pulling in just over 5%. The area to watch is the number of SMEs now going to price comparison sites.
Of the 250 commercial brokers surveyed, 17.8% named Aviva as their main insurer for their packaged business. This was followed by Allianz, with 12.3% of brokers placing the largest part of their SME book with this insurer. AXA and
NIG take third and fourth place respectively with 7.8% and 7.3% of brokers, while the best of the rest is RSA.
