A message from Adam Winslow, Chief Executive Officer

“Today, we have set out our strategy and clear targets designed to position DLG as the customers’ insurer of choice.

“Since joining DLG just over four months ago I have rigorously reviewed our business, and listened carefully to investors, customers, and employees. This work has deepened my belief in our strong foundations and excellent potential.

“Putting our strongest brand, Direct Line, on price comparison websites, where 90% of consumers shop, means we will be shaking up the motor insurance market once again.

“However, DLG is about more than just Motor, and we have ambitious plans to grow in Home, Rescue and Commercial Direct.

“Our refreshed strategy will be delivered by our new executive team, who have significant expertise in our core markets.

“The strategy and targets set out today signal our ambition and intention to grow our business and deliver strong returns for our shareholders.”

 

Becoming the customers’ insurer of choice

"I believe we’ve made some substantial decisions that will shape the strategic direction of the group. As we unveil our strategy, we’ll demonstrate to you that we know what it takes to win in our core markets, that we have a compelling plan to achieve these outcomes, and that we are making priority strategic choices that will enable us to deliver strong returns for our shareholders."
