  • 3. Card Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Card Protection Insurance in Europe What is the research? Finaccord’s Card Protection Metrics series of reports offer unique and detailed insights into the behaviour of cardholders in the context of card protection insurance. Based on a primary survey of over 6,000 consumers in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK carried out in the second half of 2012, the research provides valuable data describing the extent to which consumers with debit and / or credit cards take out card protection insurance. In addition to calculating the percentage of cardholders holding card protection insurance in each country, the investigation also analyses the types of policy that they hold (i.e. insurance that they are paying for separately or free cover), the range of features and services that they believe that their insurance includes, and the distribution channels and interfaces used to take out card protection insurance paid for separately. Finally, the reports measure the extent to which respondents with card protection insurance actually use their policy to make a claim or call for assistance, thereby calculating the implied annual ratio of usage to total policies in force.

  • 8. Card Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Card Protection Insurance in Europe What is the report structure (for the overview report)? 0. Executive Summary: providing a concise evaluation of the principal findings of the report. 1. Introduction: offering rationale and definitions. 2. European Overview: this chapter provides a comparison across all six countries of the proportion of cardholders with card protection insurance and how this penetration rate varies between respondents according to the type(s) of cards that they hold and according to their age, annual household income, employment status and gender. It also differentiates insured cardholders between those paying separately for their insurance and those who acquired their insurance at no extra cost through packaging with an added value account or payment card. In addition, it highlights the features and services of card protection insurance which insured respondents believe that they have access to, compares the distribution interfaces used to acquire policies paid for separately (namely, a face-to-face setting, online, a telephone call to the insurance provider, a telephone call from the insurance provider or the post) and the distribution channels used in the same context. Finally, it presents data illustrating the extent to which insured cardholders actually ever use their policy to make a claim or call for assistance, facilitating computation of an implied annual ratio of usage to total policies in force. 3. France: this chapter presents the same information as described above exclusively as it pertains to consumer approaches to card protection insurance in France. 4 - 8: Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and UK (all contents as for France). 9. Appendix: including a full transcript of the online questionnaire used for the research. Expertise in financial services© Finaccord Ltd., 2012 Web: www.finaccord.com. E-mail: info@finaccord.com 8
  • 9. Card Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Card Protection Insurance in Europe What are the key features of the research? Key features of the reports in this series include: • robust analyses showing the percentage of cardholders that acquire card protection insurance in each country, the potential for this proportion to grow further and how cross-selling rates differ between debit and credit cards; • the key segmentation of insured respondents between those that report acquiring their card protection policy at no additional cost (i.e. bundled with an added value account or payment card) and those making a separate payment for it; • unique data describing the proportion of cardholders in each country stating that their insurance provides them with particular features and services, including whether it covers all of their own cards plus those of other family members; • accurate statistics illustrating the extent to which sales of card protection insurance are made through remote interfaces (i.e. internet, telephone and post) as well as through face-to-face contact; • reliable information displaying how many insured cardholders in each country actually use their policy each year and, among those that do, whether they do so once, twice or three or more times.

  • 10. Card Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Card Protection Insurance in Europe How can the research be used? You may be able to use the reports in this series in one or more of the following ways: • understand the differing penetration rates of card protection insurance among cardholders in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK, and the variations that occur for particular socio- demographic groups; • appreciate how many cardholders are paying separately for their card protection insurance and how many acquire it packaged with an added value account or payment card as a free benefit; • evaluate the evidence for increasing penetration of card protection insurance by enriching the features and services that are offered to cardholders by means of such policies; • consider the likely success in each country of developing or optimising online distribution channels to promote card protection insurance to uninsured cardholders; • assess the degree to which cardholders with card protection insurance actually use their policy in any given year to make a claim or to call for assistance, and what this might mean for the profitability of this type of cover.
