Is Telematics the Gender Solution that the European Insurance Market Requires?

Share Article

With the ECJ’s (European Court of Justice) new gender ruling released last week, the motor insurance industry has no choice but to change its strategy for evaluating risk.

For a traditional industry, the idea of disrupting the ‘tried and tested’ underwriting process will be no easy task. However, the answer to this dilemma is already on the market and already a profitable industry in many parts of Europe and the world: Telematics.

It has been generally agreed that the best way to accurately calculate risk is to do so on an individual basis, to ensure that a premium is an accurate representation of its holder. For several years now, Telematics has offered the industry the capability to do this. By recording metrics from the car about how far it is driven, where and when it is driven, as well data about driver behaviour, premiums can be developed with the greatest of accuracy.

On top of this, drivers can be incentivised to behave in a safer manner and reduce their premium, thereby positively impacting driver safety, community road usage and fraudulent claims.

So, if the answer seems so simple, what is the problem?

This is going to be a change to a traditional market that cannot happen without intricate interaction between the insurance and telematics industries.
