Commercial motor insurance

Profitable growth for your fleet business

Boost your commercial motor insurance with Munich Re’s consulting support and receive a market-leading offer for a commercial insurance proposition.

The global GWP generated by commercial motor vehicle risks will increase from $150 billion in 2021 to more than double by 2028.

A proportion of the growth is driven by a shift from retail to commercial motor insurance. Whilst the market is still dominated by business-owned fleets, new transformative fleets such as car subscriptions and car sharing continue to emerge and an increase in direct-to-consumer business models fuels this growth further. 

Insurers have to counter thin margins due to strong competition and pressure from governments and regulators to keep premiums low. Those who want to outperform the market should be exceptionally strong in underwriting, pricing and risk management, as well as pushing product innovation. This is where Munich Re Global Consulting Services comes in.

Your challenges

  • Profitability – Struggling to deliver consistent results across your fleet portfolio? Are particular market segments creating challenges for you? Do you have robust control mechanisms in place and market-leading underwriting knowledge to deliver on your goals?
  • Sustainable growth – Are you able to confidently identify your desired growth segments? Do your products and services meet the needs of your target customer base? Do you have the tools to actively steer and control your book?
  • Adapting to transformative market trends – Are you familiar with the new mobility landscape in your market and the impact this could have on your business model? Do your business and operating models address the demands of new mobility fleets and providers?

Our team of commercial motor underwriters, actuaries, strategic consultants, all with in-depth primary insurance domain knowledge, work hands-on with our clients on site.

In order to protect profit margins whilst also capitalizing on growth opportunities, it is crucial for commercial motor insurers to have a transparent overview of their portfolio as well as the ability to take decisions quickly and decisively.
