Premium Growth: Top 25 Premium Gainers in 2008 Versus 2007
By Joseph L. Petrelli
What is the impetus for growth? Why do some insurers emphasize growth and others do not. In his September 25, 1961 address to the United Nations, President John F. Kennedy described conformity as ‘the enemy of growth’. This implies that those who emphasize growth are not conformists. If this is the situation, it seems reasonable to conclude that those who drive growth are forward thinking and seek to create the future rather than to conform to the status quo.
