Profits Reign in New Survey from Earnix

Earnix helps insurers and banks with profitability on a global scale. The company recently took 400 execs aside and asked them about their priorities. Those answers are found in a report titled, Insurance Operations in a Changing Industry.

Almost half — 48% — say they’re going to make profit more important than the growth of the company. Just 13% find growth to be more important.

The 400 had responsibilities in various departments with over half — 241 — being executives for P&C personal lines insurers and 78 of them were from commercial carriers.

Here’s a bit more from the report:

  • 35% say macroeconomic challenges are one of the top three trends currently impacting their firms
  • These are things like actuarial pricing and underwriting
  • As for climate change — on a 10-point scale, the execs rated it an 8.06
  • Another challenge — recruiting and keeping talent
  • That got an 8.05 out of the 10-point scale

Many of the executives are also making IT a priority.

As for profitability, the executives said getting to profitability isn’t easy. They are dealing with pressures like inflation, high interest rates, the breakdown of the supply chain and other economic factors.
