Key Findings & Highlights:

NelsonHall has segmented the P&C BPO industry into four areas:

  • Claims management
  • Policy administration and acquisition
  • Comprehensive policy servicing
  • Virtual insurance company

Some service providers offer end-to-end services within these segments, including claims subsidiaries, but the majority of organizations offer elements of the process ('point 'services) within each segment.

The P&C BPO market is still dominated by the 'Claims management' segment, especially in the U.S. and U.K., with increasing activity in LATAM and APAC. However, 'Policy administration and acquisition' will see the strongest growth through to 2018.

Growth across all segments will be driven by the requirement of P&C insurers to:

  • Reduce time to market and risk associated with new product introduction
  • Improve CR by reducing settlement and operational costs
  • Establish presence in emerging markets

In terms of offerings, P&C BPO services are typically split into P&C BPO specialists and traditional BPO players; point P&C providers also exist, to a smaller extent, and offer niche P&C services.

Specialists make up the largest relative share of the market, despite being fewer in numbers; however growth will be largest in the traditional BPO provider group, driven by the need for transformation and comprehensive BPO service offering.

Among the main bundles of offerings, emphasis is being placed on 'analytics and regulatory' services in support of P&C BPO, especially where fraud management is concerned. Acquisition remains an important element in gaining P&C skills and specialist capabilities, particularly for traditional players.

India and the U.S. continue to be the most dominant delivery center locations. All traditional BPO providers have a heavy concentration of offshore delivery, but pure players favor onshore, with some having no intention of moving services offshore.

Main target geographies continue to be the U.S. and U.K., with some vendors starting to explore LATAM; growth in EMEA remains slow, with fewer vendors targeting this geography.

Having identified target geographies, vendors are now looking at ways to capitalize on the opportunities within them, predominantly through development of specialist capabilities and cost savings through basic policy processing.
