Key features include: an outline of market drivers and the value, growth and segmentation of the market from 2014 to 2018; quantification and commentary concerning the segmentation of policies in force by distribution channels used to buy them in 2018; estimates for underwriter market shares in 2018; a comprehensive listing of major affinity and partnership marketing relationships visible at the time of the research in 2019 for these types of policy; a review of the impact of insurtech and other technological innovation on this sector; and forecasts for the value of the market up to 2022.
In this report, ‘non-standard’ properties are defined as comprising dwellings built using materials other than brick or stone for the walls, and tiles or slate for the roof. The main categories of these are buildings with timber frames, pre-fabricated buildings and thatched properties, while other types of non-standard construction include buildings with steel frames, made from natural materials (e.g. cob or wattle and daub), with alternative cladding, or with flat or green roofs. Meanwhile, listed buildings are ones that have been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest maintained by English Heritage. This report only covers grade II (or B and C in Scotland and B1 and B2 in Northern Ireland) listed buildings.
In keeping with 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.
