The challenges for Life and Pensions (L&P) insurers, which struggle with a legacy environment, magnified when the outbreak of COVID-19 necessitated new operating models. Insurers looked at their service partners to ensure touchless and flexible operations. Service providers with the ecosystem of requisite capabilities stood a fair chance of success. L&P insurance BPO/TPA services market continued its transition to a greater demand and delivery of modernization solutions. Service providers intensified their focus toward active blocks by leveraging relevant technologies – platform and digital – and making domain investments to meet buyers’ need for rapid speed-to-market and better customer experience. Although the proprietary platform-led BPaaS model continues to dominate service offerings, some providers are now following a platform-agnostic approach toward service delivery. Buyers are also increasingly adopting outsourcing for their group life, annuities, and retirement product portfolios, where transformation comes across as a key demand theme. In terms of geographic spread, North America leads in terms of new activity, while less mature markets such as Continental Europe and Asia Pacific are also contributing to expansion.
