The study provides a first complete overview about direct channel markets & trends and the latest best-in-class strategies and tools.
Today, direct & low-cost insurance, offered mainly online and by phone, is responsible for 80 billion EUR revenues (gross written premiums) in non-life & life business in Europe.
