The future of disclosure: how can we make it work better for consumers?

26 May 2017

Denise Hang, Insurance Council of AustraliaDenise_Hang

Effective product disclosure is an ongoing challenge for consumer contracts of all kinds around the world. Delivering information at the right time, and in the right way, to improve decision making is complex. In 2015, the Insurance Council established an independent taskforce to assess the effectiveness of, and recommend initiatives to enhance, product disclosure.

This presentation will outline the findings from research that has been conducted by the Insurance Council into consumer pre-purchase decision-making and the role of disclosure in helping consumers to purchase general insurance that meets their needs.

Clare will highlighting ASIC's research on the limits of disclosure and draw on common themes across ASIC's significant bank of consumer and investor research, as well as relevant principles from the behavioural sciences.
