  4. 4. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 4 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 2. Insurance products 2.1 Health insurance Total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Health Insurance Portfolio increased this quarter by 2.94%, setting a new annual peak record on the week ending 31 July 2010. Searches dropped towards the end of the quarter but were still much higher than in the same quarter last year. Health insurance search performance Health insurance top downstream websites  Year-on-year there was a 25% increase in searches for health insurance. The biggest recipient of that increase in traffic was the NHS Choices website, which nearly doubled its traffic this quarter.  More than half of the top downstream websites to receive traffic from health insurance search terms increased their share of portfolio clicks this quarter. The most significant drop of the quarter was for the EHIC, despite ‘european health insurance card’ and ‘european health insurance card renewal’ being the top two search terms of the quarter.  ‘hsa health insurance’ had the highest paid rate of the quarter with 62% of clicks coming from paid links. Health insurance search terms performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter Recovering visits to Bupa Bupa has seen a general decline in traffic since March but remains ahead of its position in September 2009 and has increased visits to the Bupa website by 5.6% in the last quarter.
  5. 5. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 5 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 2.2 Home insurance Total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Home Insurance Portfolio experienced similar peaks and troughs this quarter as it did last quarter. Overall the portfolio finished the quarter 1.80% higher than it was at the end of June, with highs in mid July and September. Home insurance search performance Home insurance top downstream websites  Money Supermarket regained its position at the top of the downstream websites this quarter as it grew its market share of visits by 3.76%. Last quarter’s number one website Go Compare lost 4.81% of its market share of visits from the portfolio, dropping back down to second place.  ‘home insurance’ was the most popular search term of the quarter, with nearly twice the volume of searches as ‘house insurance’. Direct Line was the most popular branded search term in the portfolio for the second consecutive quarter.  Aside from Go Compare, Confused.com also saw a significant drop in traffic this quarter with a 2.49% drop from June. Four other brands also received less traffic from the home insurance portfolio this quarter but these were all less than 1% drops.  Castle Cover broke into the top 15 downstream websites for the first time this quarter with 0.96% of all traffic from the portfolio of search terms. Home insurance search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter Improved traffic to Castle Cover In the last quarter Castle Cover has seen a 33% lift in traffic to its website.
  6. 6. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 6 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 2.3 Motor insurance Total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Motor Insurance Portfolio saw further decreases this quarter as the market slipped from the spring peaks. Motor insurance witnessed a resurgence in July but overall decreased by 8.59% for the quarter. Motor insurance search performance Motor insurance top downstream websites  Motor insurance declined over the quarter and finished 4.42% down year-on-year. If the annual trends repeat last year’s performance then motor insurance can expect a sharp decline next quarter before climbing rapidly after Christmas.  Go Compare lost 4.32% of the market share of visits from the motor insurance portfolio this quarter. Despite having the biggest decrease of the quarter, Go Compare still had a healthy lead over the competition picking up 7.86% more traffic from the portfolio than Money Supermarket.  Only three of the top 15 search terms decreased their percentage of clicks this quarter, while ‘car insurance’ was the highest climber, growing to 16.37% overall. Motor insurance search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter Lack of New Car Registrations Tracking visits to the DVLA and the top car insurance comparison site, Go Compare, it’s interesting there were no noticeable spikes in traffic around 1 March and 1 September when new car registration plates are issued. This may indicate fewer new cars were being bought.
  7. 7. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 7 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 2.4 Travel insurance Total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Travel Insurance Portfolio fell during the quarter after the busy summer period. Between June and September, searches for travel insurance terms dropped by 31.51%. Compared to September 2009, searches were down by 13.77%. Travel insurance search performance Travel insurance top downstream websites  After a solid quarter in June, the Post Office fell from second place to third, with InsureAndGo moving in to take its place. Just 0.19% of visits from the portfolio separates second and third place this quarter.  Following in the footsteps of Tesco Bank (which kept its position in fourth place this quarter); Sainsbury’s Bank broke into the top 15 downstream websites for the travel insurance portfolio. Along with M&S Money, supermarket and retail brands are now becoming a growing force in the insurance market.  Go Travel Insurance slipped this quarter after strong growth in the June quarter. There was an overall decline of 0.82% in the percentage of visits from the travel portfolio of search terms.  Generic search terms in travel insurance continued to grow online this quarter, with ‘travel insurance’ accounting for over a quarter of all searches. There were more searches online this quarter for ‘travel insurance’ than for the rest of the top 10 search terms combined. Travel insurance search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter Performance of Supermarket Brands in Travel Insurance Big brand supermarkets and retailers are squeezing insurers in the travel market. Sainsbury’s Bank is now almost on a par with M&S Money, ASDA Finance is not far behind, while Tesco maintains a strong top position.
  8. 8. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 8 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 3. Finance products 3.1 Credit cards Total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Credit Card Portfolio decreased by 5.27% over the quarter, losing nearly all the ground that had been gained in the previous quarter. Searches for credit cards were increasing this time last year, whilst the current trend indicates a continuing decline in the run-up to Christmas. Credit cards search performance Credit cards top downstream websites  Barclaycard UK remained as the top recipient of traffic for the quarter despite losing 1.37% of its market share of visits from June’s quarter. Barclaycard account services jumped into second position, giving Barclaycard a combined 32.44% market share of visits from the credit card portfolio.  Tesco, Virgin Money and American Express all received fewer visits from the portfolio this quarter, further consolidating Barclaycard’s position as the pre-eminent player in the credit card field.  In a similar story to the credit card downstream visits, Virgin and American Express saw decrease in searches for their products, whilst Barclaycard increased its market share of searches. Nearly 30% of all searches in the portfolio were for ‘barclaycard’ over the quarter.  More branded credit card search terms were prevalent this quarter than last quarter, with searches for 0% interest cards dropping out of the top 15. Credit cards search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter Credit card search traffic to Virgin Money UK Virgin has been struggling against the competition in the credit card arena. However, its performance has improved in the last few weeks, bringing Virgin’s market share back to 7.51% of visits from the portfolio.
  9. 9. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 9 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 3.2 Loans Searches for terms in Experian Hitwise’s Loans Portfolio increased at the beginning of the quarter until a peak in the week ending 7 August 2010. Overall the traffic for the quarter declined by 1.46% although the decline was less severe than last quarter’s 7% drop. Loans search performance Loans top downstream websites  Year-on-year searches for terms within the loans portfolio are down by 14.28%. Searches are likely to decrease further over the next few months and then increase again post-Christmas as consumers look for money to cover their excessive Christmas spending.  Sainsbury’s Bank has made it back into the top five downstream websites despite a slight decline in traffic from the loans portfolio. All of the top five had a worse performance this quarter than the June quarter, although there were increases for other sites in the top 15, notably Moneymadeclear and Welcome Loans UK.  Loans remain one of the worst areas for brand penetration, with very few brands ranking highly for loan-related search terms. Only one of the top 15 search terms this quarter was a branded term for Tesco, with the rest being generic search terms. Loans search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter UK Internet searches for ‘student loans’ Last quarter saw a huge spike in searches for student loans. This quarter, as University terms started, searches for ‘student loans’ increased by 8.33%.
  10. 10. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 10 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 3.3 Savings After last quarter’s huge plunge in traffic, total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Savings Portfolio continued to fall, but at a much slower rate. Last quarter search volume more than halved; this quarter the decline was 17.13%. Savings search performance Savings top downstream websites  Only four of the top 15 websites to receive traffic from the portfolio increased their market share of visits, with Know Your Money seeing the biggest percentage increase, up 4.59% from last quarter.  Directgov increased its volume of traffic from the savings portfolio by 1.16% over the quarter, but actually fell one place in the rankings to sixth because of the rise of Know Your Money.  Only two of the top 15 search terms dropped this quarter, both were ISA-related. The other 13 terms all saw an increase in their share of portfolio clicks, with ‘saving accounts’ growing by nearly 1%. The search behaviour reflects a move away from ISA products in the market.  The AA moved into the top 15 downstream websites this quarter, with 1.76% of all portfolio clicks over the 12 weeks. Savings search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter ISA declining search performance Searches for ISAs have dropped by 16.82% in the last quarter.
  11. 11. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 11 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 3.4 Mortgages Total search volume for Experian Hitwise’s Mortgages Portfolio remained virtually unchanged this quarter, but continued its downward trend from the same time last year. In the last 12 months, searches on mortgage terms have decreased by 20%. Mortgages search performance Mortgages top downstream websites  Most of the top search terms in the Mortgages Portfolio gained additional share of portfolio clicks, with the exceptions of ‘mortgage rates’, ‘best mortgage deals’ and ‘natwest mortgages’.  Searches for ‘mortgage calculator’ accounted for 17.32% of all of the searches within the portfolio. Mortgage calculators are clearly a popular trend to search for online given that four of the top 15 search terms included the word ‘calculator’.  Five of the top 15 downstream websites increased their market share of visits this quarter, with Money Supermarket stretching the lead at the top of the table. On the back of increased searches for mortgage calculators, Mortgagecalculator.org increased its market share of visits by 0.49%. Mortgages search performance Decrease from Previous Quarter Increase from Previous Quarter Searches for Mortgage Calculators Searches for ‘mortgage calculator uk’ have dropped off since March where ‘mortgage repayment calculator’ has contiued to grow, becoming the second most popular calculator mortgage term.

  14. 14. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 14 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 6. Financial aggregators Financial aggregators performance Top 10 Financial aggregators by market share Over half of the top financial aggregators have seen improvements in their quarterly traffic, with Beat That Quote growing by 10.23% and Compare the Market growing by 5.18% - the two fastest growers in the market. Money Saving Expert was once again the top financial aggregator, having grown by 14% year on year. Money Saving Expert controls nearly a third of all traffic to the category, despite a slight decline in market share of visits in the last quarter. Confused.com has seen the biggest decline year-on-year, losing over 33% of its traffic since September 2009. Financial aggregators upstream All of the key industries received more of their traffic from financial aggregators in September compared to August. Insurance companies now depend on financial aggregators for nearly 5% of all traffic received. Top 25 financial aggregators generic search terms Car insurance was the key industry that drove consumers online to use financial aggregation sites. Five of the top 25 search terms were car-related, all of which were inside the top 10 most popular terms. Interestingly, variations of search terms including the word ‘cheap’ did not do as well as other variations. For example ‘car insurance quotes’ did better than ‘cheap car insurance’, and ‘travel insurance compare’ was ranked higher than ‘cheap travel insurance’ perhaps indicating a new trend in search behaviour away from ‘cheap’ search terms. 10 of the top 15 search terms delivering traffic to financial aggregators decreased their market share of clicks this quarter, with ‘car insurance comparison’ taking the steepest decline. Top 20 sites receiving traffic from financial aggregators After visiting financial aggregator websites, the variety of websites visited is quite diverse. From Facebook, to eBay to Odeon Cinemas, consumers are visiting many different kinds of sites after financial aggregators. This reflects the popularity of other products, such as discount vouchers and comparison tools for non-financial products, on financial aggregator websites. Within the downstream, perhaps the biggest winners within the finance industry are Tesco Bank, Santander, the AA and Direct Line. Tesco Bank receives nearly 1% of all downstream traffic from financial aggregators. Three of the top 20 recipients of traffic from financial aggregators are Money Saving Expert sites, including forums, Travel Money Max and Flight Checker.
  15. 15. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 15 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 7. Quarterly topical stories 7.1 Experian Mosaic reveals who searches for financial products Every quarter we analyse the changing trends online in the finacial arena, for both financial products such as credit cards and for insurance products such as car insurance. Although the data mostly focuses on the search terms driving traffic to those industries, and which websites are benefiting from that traffic this is really just the tip of the iceberg of what Experian Hitwise can do. Experian Mosaic is Experian’s in-house segmentation system, that classifies the UK population into 15 different groups and 67 sub-groups based on their demographic, behavioural or socio-economic charatceristics. Mosaic uses over 400 seperate sources of data including credit checks, loyalty cards and house sale prices in order to group members together. Using Mosaic it’s possible to see what type of people are searching for the various financial and insurance products on the market. The spider diagram below shows which Mosaic groups are searching for which insurance products. What the data shows is that there are certain groups which have a much higher liklihood of searching for different insurance products. For example, the ‘Alpha Territory’ group, the
  16. 16. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 16 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 most affluent group in the Mosaic profile are the most likely to search for health insurance. However, ‘Alpha Territory’ are much less likely to search for motor insurance. By contrast, the ‘Claimant Cultures’ group, who are reliant on benefits and living in low-rise council estates are much more likely to search for motor insurance, and much less likely to search for health insurance. The data above is based on an index score, calculated as the number of searches on a product portfolio per head of online population. So the ‘Alpha Territory’ score of 169 does not mean that more searches for health insurance come from the ‘Alpha Territory’ group than any other. Instead, the index score of 169 indicates that per person, the ‘Alpha Territory’ are the most prolific searches for health insurance and account for a greater proportion of searches than would be expected for a group of their size. What is clear from the diagram is that health insurance appears to be a priority for the more affluent groups: ‘Alpha Territory’. ‘Professional Rewards’ and ‘Careers and Kids’. Home insurance and motor insurance tend to be fairly universal in terms of Mosaic spread, whereas travel insurance is a priority for ‘New Homemakers’, ‘Terraced Melting Pot’ and ‘Liberal Opinions’, typified by young urbanites who live in small modern homes but don’t necessarily have lots of money. Looking at the finance products tells a similar story. The consumers most likely to search for savings products online are the more affluent groups including ‘Alpha Territory’. ‘Professional Rewards’ and ‘Acitve Retirement’. Meanwhile, less afluent groups are much
  17. 17. Financial Services Quarterly Review | Issue 8 | Page 17 Hitwise UK Limited 2010 more likely to search for loans, including ‘Claimant Cultures’, ‘Ex-Council Community’ and ‘Upper Floor Living’. Credit cards and mortgages are reasonably universal, though a couple of Mosaic groups stick out as being over-indexed for both products. ‘New Homemakers’ and ‘Terraced Melting Pot’ are much more likely to search for mortgages, whilst ‘Careers and Kids’ and ‘Small Town Diversity’ are more likely to search for credit cards than other Mosaic groups. The interesting point for marketers is that once a particular Mosaic group has been identified as a key audience for their product, other websites can be targeted which also appeal to the same Mosaic group. Companies trying to sell savings products and health insurance for example have a high proportion of their visits from the ‘Alpha Territory’ group. Other websites that this group frequent more than the industry average include Bloomberg.com. British Airways, the Financial Times, Transport for London, LinkedIn and Waitrose. These are just a few examples of websites marketers could target in order to speak to their key demographic for health insurance and savings.
