    Tough competition stalls Direct Line's premiums growth

    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.

    Insurer Direct Line issues Brexit 'green cards' to drivers

    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.

    Insurer Direct Line names Penny James CEO

    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.

    Direct Line reports drop in premiums as competition bites

    Like its rivals, Direct Line has been hit in the past two quarters by steep claims stemming from volatile weather in Britain, including the hottest summer in living memory following a late winter freeze, as well as increasing competition. Direct Line, however, called its third-quarter performance "robust", and stuck to its 2018 and medium-term financial targets. The FTSE 100 firm, best known for its Churchill, Green Flag and Privilege brands, said gross written premiums fell to 854.5 million pounds in the three months ended Sept. 30, from 907.2 million pounds last year.

    Direct Line shares sour as CEO to step down after decade at helm

    Geddes steered Direct Line through its split from the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS.L) and its London listing in 2012, turning it into a blue-chip stock two years later. "Geddes has driven the business for nearly 10 years and has done an exceptional job for shareholders over that time so news of his departure is likely to be another negative for the shares, in our view," Shore Capital analyst Paul De'Ath, said. Direct Line said Geddes would step down in summer 2019.
