Bancassurance: Time for Digital

4 minute

Consumers are increasingly turning to digital channels that are offering greater streamlined experiences. They are getting more savvy and their financial needs are growing more complex - what does this mean for bancassurance? The Current State of BancassuranceAccording to the McKinsey study, Banks have been slow to implement a digital model for bancassurance. It’s time for them to rethink their distribution models to stay relevant in order to meet the growing needs of consumers. Customers in today’s faceless world rarely visit a physical bank branch and banks are yet to master the game of digitisation.The Need To Go DigitalBanks and insurers need to buckle up and provide comprehensive solutions to consumer demands. Digitisation is the key ingredient of growth for bancassurers. It promises in delivering value to both consumers and banks. Bancassurers have deterred from digitisation for way too long now. It is the key to expanding reach, cross-selling services, and transforming the way banks meet the rising needs of consumers.The Winning Formula for Sustained and Lasting Bancassurance GrowthPersonalisation, superior customer service, omni-channel engagement – paying close attention to these three components will ultimately help bancassurers achieve long-term growth.

  1. Boosting PersonalisationLeveraging data between banks and insurers will help boost personalisation as data and analytics provide consistency in solution recommendations.
  2. Offering Superior Customer ServiceAdopting a customer-centric approach will allow bancassurers to design and offer personalisation. There is also a need for a simple, end-to-end process to reduce barriers to relationship managers and sales in digital channels.
  3. Mastering Omnic-hannel ExperienceCustomers expect a seamless journey across channels and this requires both physical (personal) and digital channels. From initial contact to spark interest to keeping customers engaged with personalised and tailored content is the key to growth.
