Gen Z and millennials account for 24% and 27%, respectively, have a purchasing power estimated to be in trillions of dollars per year.
There are ways through which the insurance organizations can attract or remain attractive to millennial and Gen Z insurance clients.
The Hybrid Model. One of the ways through which the insurance companies can attract the Millenials and GenZ demography is by ensuring a hybrid model, which means that insurers need to integrate technology and the traditional method.
Millennials are familiar with companies moving from conducting businesses in brick-and-mortar while migrating to the use of technology while the GenZ's have only known life online and anything technology. However, there is a need for insurance companies to continue integrating technology in their day-to-day operations to stay relevant.
However, these companies cannot abandon the old ways they used to communicate completely. It should be a mixed-method with the Millenials and Gen Z - face-to-face to offer advice.
Delightful Customer Experience. Whenever a company wants to acquire and retain customers belonging to Gen Z and Millennial demography, they should offer their customers a lifetime experience - a delightful experience.
Some companies are already setting the standards. Amazon and Uber are good examples - they've turned out to be meeting the needs of the Millenials and Gen Z customers. For instance, these generations require things to be done quickly. If a company was to do a quote for a policy, it has to do it in time.
Insurance companies must embrace the new way of attracting these new sets of customers - and retaining them. The way these demography consume insurance has changed. Only when the insurance sector enhanced their knowledge that they can offer the customers a truly satisfying experience.

The insurers can ensure that they are available around the close throughout the week to offer their services by using different communication channels such as web - live chat and forms, mobile apps, phone calls, social media and in-person meetings. The insurers, who want to remain attractive and earn themselves loyal customers, need to have in place communication channels that can enable them to do business and at a given time, anywhere avail insurance information, files, and messages and offer online payment options.
By doing this, the insurance companies will have given the customers a chance to communicate, make payments and pick up insurance policies that they need at their own convenient time.
