After a year marred by volatile weather in the UK, motor insurers have struggled with strained prices in a highly competitive market. "The motor market remained highly competitive, with market premiums failing to keep pace with claims inflation," Chief Financial Officer and CEO-designate Penny James said. The cost of a comprehensive motor insurance policy fell 1 percent in Britain in the first quarter, pushed down by uncertainty around the rate used to calculate compensation for personal injuries and the Civil Liability Bill, a survey showed last month.
The move by Britain's largest motor insurer is part of its efforts to mitigate the effects of a British departure from the bloc without a deal and follows a call by Britain's leading insurance trade body for drivers going to the EU to request a green card from their insurers one month before travel. Direct Line, which reported a fall in 2018 earnings on Tuesday due to a fall in insurance prices and extreme weather in Britain, also warned that it would not be immune to a "disruptive Brexit", despite the steps it has taken.
The insurer also said it was searching for a new finance chief. Direct Line — whose brands include Churchill, Green Flag and Privilege — said in August that Geddes would step down in 2019 after a decade at the helm, as its first-half profit took a beating from the cold winter. Geddes steered Direct Line through its split from the Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and its London listing in 2012, turning it into a blue-chip stock two years later.
