Between them, they provide around 90% of domestic insurance services sold in the UK. ABI member companies also account for almost 15 per cent of investments in the London stock market. The ABI’s policy work is organised around four main policy departments: General Insurance; Life and Pensions; Financial Regulation and Taxation and Investment Affairs. In addition, the ABI has an expert Research and Statistics Department, and represents the insurance industry to external audiences through its Media and Political Affairs and European and International teams.
