After the U.S. financial crisis of 2008, the life insurance industry experienced a major slump. New policy sales dropped substantially and many policy holders were forced to drop coverage due to financial strains. Over the past four years the economy has begun a slow rebound which in turn has helped to boost consumer confidence. As a result the life insurance industry is once again reporting positive year over year growth. In fact, numbers released by industry authority LIMRA revealed a five percent rise in individual life policy count in the first quarter of this year versus last. As consumers once again prioritize long term investments, including life insurance, industry leaders are jumping at the opportunity to assist.
After closing out two of their most successful quarters to date, IntelliQuote is proud to announce impressive year over year growth in online life insurance application submissions. They began the year with a historic 18 percent growth in applications, in the first quarter of 2012 versus first quarter 2011. Today, the IntelliQuote leadership team is excited to announce yet another incredible achievement; 11 percent year over year growth for second quarter 2012 versus second quarter 2011.
“This rise in online life insurance applications is a great indicator of our growth as a company as well as a rise in consumer confidence,” said Gary Lardy, President and CEO of IntelliQuote. “Many of the consumers we speak to today already have a keen understanding of the importance of life insurance protection, they were simply unable to afford coverage during the recent economic slump. We are honored to have the opportunity to help these individuals today, as they plan for tomorrow.”
The entire IntelliQuote team has been hard at work since this influx of life insurance applications first began. From helping new applicants understand their coverage options to assisting with the application process, IntelliQuote agents are working diligently to service new and returning customers.
“The more applications we receive, the more families we can help secure the protection they deserve,” added Lardy.
IntelliQuote’s success in 2012 speaks to a shift in consumer behavior. Like so many of their peers, IntelliQuote is experiencing record growth and planning for an exciting and prosperous future.
