Insurers have a variety of ways to improve profitability and retain customers. These strategies include increasing net income and reinsuring more risk. These strategies also involve raising additional capital. Some companies try to improve their customer service by focusing on one or two areas. Other companies employ a combination of methods. Regardless of the strategy, insurers will often seek to maintain a high level of capacity in order to avoid large losses.

To achieve this, insurers need to create a differentiated value proposition and innovation portfolio. Depending on the insurer’s innovation priorities, the right operating model will differ. Some will focus on improving core operations, while others may focus on exploring disruptive opportunities outside the core offering. Often, innovative opportunities come from external partnerships, strategic M&A, or traditional R&D.

For many years, economists have studied the insurance industry and developed a number of theoretical concepts. One of these theories holds that consumers purchase insurance even though they do not need to do so. This is because many large risks are not insured. In order to achieve a competitive return for shareholders, insurers should primarily offer insurance against large losses. However, this is not always possible. Insurers need to be profitable, but they cannot afford to ignore the risk of a catastrophic event.

To increase profitability, insurance carriers must also increase trust among stakeholders. By being more transparent about the data they collect, they can improve customer experience and retention. Insurers should also become more proactive in solving big picture societal challenges. For example, insurers can close coverage gaps during natural disasters or mitigate the financial impact of pandemics.
