Customer Segmentation in UK Insurance: Exclusivity

Pages: 27 Published: March 04, 2017 Report Code: GDF0003IA

A small group of consumers positively identify with the Exclusivity customer segment. Around 14% fit into this category. Here, the apparent value for money and level of service received from an insurer is just as important as the brand of the provider. In this regard, Exclusivity consumers fall into two separate groups, each of which prioritizes the brand of an insurer for different reasons.

Standard demographic analysis often fails to reveal sufficiently deep insight into how consumers behave and the motivations behind it. We have produced an attitudinally based segmentation of the consumer market, and have used this to produce an examination of the market for key financial products and services. Here we focus on those falling into the Exclusivity category, and explore the characteristics of these individuals. There are two ways in which Exclusivity individuals can be defined and how their approach to financial products and services can be analyzed: those who seek branding over apparent value for money (Brand Chasers), and those who are usually the first to try new products (Early Adopters).


– Consumers aged 18–24 represent the largest proportion of those falling into the Exclusivity customer segment at 17.5%.

– 51.9% of consumers who agree that value for money is more important than branding chose a private motor insurance provider because they offered the cheapest quote.

Insurers with a track record for developing new products and propositions will appeal to those categorized as Early Adopters, with this group mainly consisting of younger consumers who are always willing to try a new invention.
