FCA strictures on GAP insurance may lead to a threat for point-of-sale finance

The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is proposing a shake-up of the £1bn general insurance add-on markets including banning pre-ticked boxes, forcing firms to publish claims ratios and breaking the point of sale advantage for guaranteed asset protection (GAP) insurance, usually offered alongside new and used car sales. Christopher Woolard, director of policy, risk and research at the FCA, said: “There’s a clear case for us to intervene. Competition in this market is not working well and many consumers are simply not getting value for money. Firms must start putting consumers first and stop seeing them as pound signs. “We believe our proposals will address these issues and prevent consumers paying for poor-value insurance products that they may not need or use.”
