Brexit in Insurance – Thematic Research
UK insurers have lost their passporting rights, losing the freedom to provide cross-border services to any European Economic Area (EEA) member state and vice versa. No decision on equivalence for financial services providers has been confirmed, which is of utmost importance to facilitate cross-border contracts. The UK’s departure from the EU will impact all insurance lines to some extent. For instance, red tape at the border means that transporting goods in and out of the UK has not only become more complex, but also costlier. The price of imported goods is set to rise, driving goods in transit premiums up. Supply chains may change, altering risks. Meanwhile, motorists traveling between the UK and the EU now need to obtain a Green Card from their insurance provider. Uncertainty continues to reign in post-Brexit UK. The full impact of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, and the longer-term implications, are not yet fully understood.
Uncertainty in the Brexit negotiations prompted big insurance names to prepare for a no-deal scenario, transferring business from the UK to existing or new EU-based carriers.
UK insurtechs and other startups risk losing funding and EU talent as the free movement of people has come to an end.
Some insurance lines can benefit from Brexit. UK/EU border chaos and increased custom checks will boost the price of freight goods and foodstuffs, thus increasing cargo and goods in transit insurance premiums.
Brexit comes at the same time as COVID-19, which has already weakened the UK’s economy.
