Published 25 July 2017

The Q2 edition of the 2017 Gallagher Market Overview Report is now available to view online.

It explores challenges and disruptions facing the insurance industry in a year likely to be shaped by evolving political and economic change.

What’s inside?

  • Global ransomware damage costs rising 15-fold in just two years to more than US$5 billion and the broader impact of June’s Peyta malware attacks
  • The cost of reputational loss in a world of fast celebrity and events that bring some of Australia’s most iconic brands into the spotlight and increased scrutiny
  • The 457 visa back-flip and challenges to Australia’s talent pipeline and growth plans
  • The Finkel Review and the emergence of renewables amidst growing fears of regional black-outs and power supply continuity issues

The report also looks at emerging trends and important events in other major insurance classes and provides a general market overview and perspectives on what’s likely to play out in the Australian insurance sector in the remainder of 2017.
