Consulting Services

In addition to its published market research products, Finaccord is also able to offer research-based, tactical consulting services on a worldwide basis. Drawing on the experience of its international team of consultants and working in close partnership with the client, Finaccord delivers accurate, insightful results across a range of topics. Typical areas of consulting work include:

  • Recent Assignment

    On behalf of an international insurer intent on building its position in the global travel insurance market, Finaccord leveraged its detailed knowledge of this sector to estimate the market shares in travel insurance of competing underwriters at both a global level and within major regions.

  • Recent Assignment

    Responding to the needs of a leading management consultancy, Finaccord was able to take advantage of its extensive in-house datasets to quantify the shares of both traditional and alternative (including affinity / corporate partner) distribution channels across a range of insurance product types in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK.

  • Recent Assignment

    Working in tandem with one of the world’s top management consulting firms, Finaccord assisted it with due diligence concerning the Italian market for mobile phone insurance not only by means of its published market and consumer research reports about this subject but also via extensive ‘after-sales’ support in relation to specific questions arising from those reports.

  • Recent Assignment

    Leveraging its unrivalled understanding of how commercial lines insurance markets segment by industry sector and client size, as well as by product class, Finaccord generated a detailed segmentation of commercial non-life insurance premiums in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK for one of the world’s top insurance groups.

  • Recent Assignment

    A UK-based non-life insurer was seeking to strengthen its links with key intermediaries by providing intelligence to them in respect of opportunities in specific mid-corporate insurance markets in the UK; Finaccord was able to assist it by generating insights about both particular business sectors and regions.

  • Recent Assignment

    Quantifying under-researched (or unresearched) insurance segments is one of Finaccord’s core capabilities hence when a regular client approached it with a need to understand the current and future outlook of the market for insurance for retirement communities in the UK, it was able to help it in rapid time by adapting its model of the UK commercial lines insurance sector.

  • Recent Assignment

    Selected as a result of its long-standing knowledge of finance, insurance, warranty and assistance (F&I) products in the automotive sector, Finaccord delivered a detailed comparison of GAP insurance products offered by leading automotive finance captives in Europe for the benefit of an international insurer with an interest in this sector.

  • Recent Assignment

    Aware of its expertise in affinity and corporate partner marketing of financial services in the UK, a Spain-based assistance firm selected Finaccord to construct a similar analysis of the Spanish market with coverage of ten insurance and warranty products across a range of distributor categories including airlines, automotive clubs, banking institutions, consumer product manufacturers, online aggregators, retailers and utilities.


Finaccord has more than ten years of experience of designing both single-country and multi-country B2C and B2B surveys covering topics in insurance and other financial services worldwide. We also use a variety of techniques to analyse the results to produce insightful and actionable conclusions. As such, we have built up long-standing expertise in best practice as it applies to survey design and analysis, cognisant of the need to optimise the construction of question and answer options, plus questionnaire routing, in order to generate data that is as accurate and usable as possible. This manifests itself both in our published Consumer Intelligence studies and bespoke surveys commissioned by clients.

Market3 is a proprietary, bespoke model developed by Finaccord that responds to the need for data extracts, produced flexibly, covering the global commercial non-life (property and casualty) insurance market; this includes insurance bought by corporate, business, public sector and not-for-profit customers.
Do you want to know how much is spent every year on commercial liability insurance by small and medium-sized entities working in the hospitality sector in Spain? Or would you like a forecast for premiums paid by US-based technology and media companies for political and trade credit insurance? Or do you simply need the split between non-specialty and speciality commercial lines premiums across all countries that Finaccord is able to cover for this service?
If so, Finaccord can provide the answers.

Please download the Market3 brochure for further information. 

How can Market3 be used?
  • To make like-for-like comparisons of commercial lines insurance across major markets around the world in order to screen for viable investment opportunities and to assess how to deploy risk capital in particular segments;
  • To identify product-specific/sector-specific growth opportunities within wider, often more mature markets for commercial P&C insurance;
  • To appreciate the magnitude of the opportunity for underwriting and/or distributing commercial lines cover to micro and small entities (with fewer than 50 employees);
  • To gain insight into the current and future value of commercial non-life insurance sold to 18 key customer activity segments, including energy and power, financial institutions, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, professional services, retail and wholesale distribution, technology/media and transportation (road and rail).
