Under-served, under-insured and data-poor: How can we make insurance easier for SMEs?

How many times have you looked at the insurance of a small or medium sized company and felt that something was not quite right? That the business was being insured for what the owner wanted, rather than what it really needed? If that happens often, almost certainly you are not alone.

This blog highlights the perils of underinsurance for SMEs, and how insurers and brokers can combine education, data and technology to make insurance relevant and easier for SMEs.
