We provide unique market intelligence on the intersection of distribution channels (particularly the tied agency channel) with the following industry sectors:

  • life insurance

  • non-life (P&C) insurance

  • wealth management 


We track six key Asian markets (China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, & Thailand), South Africa, and a number of European markets (including Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Poland, Spain, and Romania).


Our clients typically come from three segments:

  • Insurance companies (life & non-life) - strategy managers, distribution channel managers, M&A staff

  • Investment community - equity research analysts, fund managers, private equity investors, hedge funds

  • Professional service firms - strategy consultants, actuarial consultants, investment bank corporate finance/M&A staff


We focus on providing specialised, and unique, analysis on distribution channel headcount, movements (recruitment, retention, poaching), and intermediary experience levels. The analysis is at the company level, across all companies in each market.
