The second in our regular series looking at hot topics. We're trying to start a debate so it might be a little provocative. Is a tech giant or a global brand about to bulldoze its way into UK protection and disrupt the market from under our feet? We’ve all had the conversation. It’s a frequent topic of discussion, especially over a few beers when the protection great and good come together after an event. “I’m surprised no one has done it yet,” someone will say. “The UK protection market is ripe for disruption.
