UK GAP Insurance: Market Dynamics, Affinities and Partnerships is a report investigating the market for GAP insurance in the UK. Key features include: an outline of market drivers and the value and growth of the market from 2010 to 2014; quantification and commentary concerning the segmentation of policies in force by distribution channels used to buy them in 2014; estimates for underwriter market shares in 2014; a comprehensive listing of close to 40 affinity and partnership marketing relationships visible at the time of the research in 2015 for this type of policy; and forecasts for the value of the market up to 2018.

In this report, GAP insurance is defined as stand-alone cover for passenger cars acquired by individuals, including self-employed individuals, that is either paid for by itself or with the cost funded through a finance or leasing contract. Thus, GAP insurance acquired by corporate buyers of passenger cars, including fleets, plus that for lorries, motorcycles, vans and other types of motorised vehicle is not included. However, it does include the four main variants of cover, namely: return-to-value GAP; return-to-invoice GAP; vehicle replacement GAP; and finance GAP.

In keeping with 19 other studies in this series, research processes and sources used to create it include the following: primary interviews with leading brokers, underwriters and affinity / corporate partners active in this field; in-house data drawn from other Finaccord reports; and comprehensive analysis of secondary information from a diverse range of data sources including UK government departments and financial regulators, relevant lifestyle organisations and trade associations, specialist publications and published disclosures by competitors active in the market.
