he consumer expectation has shifted over the last decade and insurers are feeling the impact as technology becomes more prominent. According to Bloomberg, in 1965, Americans bought 27 million policies…and in 2016, with a population that was more than 50% larger, the number of policies remained the same. Life insurance ownership rates have dropped to below 60% and the industry is seeking a solution to right the ship. So how can carriers adapt in a new world of consumer expectations? It may be as easy as making a sandwich.
