Time To Gear Up For Change; The End Of The Pandemic Leads To Change In The Australian Insurance Space.


Change is inevitable. No matter what industry you work in, economic disruption will naturally find its way through every sector. Whether that brings upon unwelcome change or some much-needed change, it’s bound to happen.

When the pandemic hit Australia in early 2020, it became an agent of change in the most disruptive form. Well, the pandemic still isn’t over but now it’s time to gear up for change in the Australian insurance space.

Luckily for the Australian insurance space, the changes that have come about thanks to the pandemic are largely positive. Throughout COVID-19 Australian insurers and brokers adapted well and proved their resilience during the whole ordeal. Ultimately, they got to show the critical role that the insurance industry has on our economy.

Insurance is critical in unprecedented times, those of which we’ve struggled through in 2020 & 2021. This showed everyday Australians how important it is to have a backup plan if something is to go wrong. It just went to show that we never know what is going to happen and that our lives are ultimately and always uncertain.



As a result, the pandemic boosted interest and demand for a range of insurance policies. The economic impact saw many people appreciate what it is like to have a regular flow of money, which meant more people were thinking about income protection insurance.

While unfortunately the loss and illness that was caused by the pandemic had others thinking about TPD (total and permanent disability), Trauma, and Accidental death cover.

Many people began thinking about the possibilities and how they could protect themselves and their family’s financial stability if anything were to happen to them. The pandemic also changed the needs of clients, as everyone’s circumstances altered during this period. With more people becoming casual or freelance workers, it changed the demographic of who was looking for protection. The flexibility in working arrangements is likely to be one of the most prominent long-term changes.

The economy and our population will never be the same, which will naturally cause a long-term change.
