Adviser Resources

Client education has never been so important

As an industry, we have faced unprecedented change and challenge.

Together, we have an opportunity to help reshape and rebuild.

From our extensive, behavioural science-led customer and adviser research, we’ve learned how life insurance customers feel about the industry, including:

  • Trust is critical, and isn't currently at the levels it needs to be
  • Customers want to know that their interests come before shareholder value
  • The complexity of life insurance is intimidating. Customers need our help to bridge the knowledge gaps they have
  • We need to eliminate uncertainty and deliver value, by demonstrating that claims will, and do, get paid.
If we don't take steps to engage and educate customers about their cover, we risk eroding the value of insurance. We risk making it harder for you to attract and retain your clients.

So, we've built the tools to help.

This is the start of our journey together towards a better experience for your clients.
