The Changing Client Journey

Our industry is experiencing a fundamental shift that requires us to think differently about how we operate. Successful families and individuals are engaged with insurance online more than ever before, researching and shopping, which means their purchasing journey has changed.

That's why Chubb has invested in research to better understand these trends and help you take full advantage of new opportunities.

The research

To help understand how families and individuals purchase insurance today and the value they see in working with independent agents and brokers, Chubb conducted a nationwide survey of insurance consumers. By asking a series of pointed questions, we learned:

What we found

The findings of our study were both eye-opening and encouraging. In short, there are things you can do, as an independent insurance agent or broker, to enhance and protect your business, even as our mutual clients and prospects shop online at a growing rate.

The client journey has changed

Successful families and individuals are twice as likely to shop online for their home insurance than are other segments of the population.

In the past 12 months

69%

have shopped online

In the future

73%

are likely to shop online

Price is not a main reason clients work with agents

When clients who work with an independent agent or broker were asked about the advantages of that relationship, getting a lower price didn’t even make the top three reasons. Instead, clients cited these benefits:

Advice - Getting valuable guidance on how to protect their home

Access - Ability to call a person vs. a company in case something happens

Time - Saving time by letting the agent or broker research carriers

Most think agents should focus on what’s right for them, not price
