We kind of all knew it anyway, but just how much money a large insurance company like the Direct Line Group makes from referral fees still took my breath away. As we reported earlier this week, the group received £110m from solicitors in the three and a half years since January 2009. Call it £30m a year and extrapolate (the group’s market share is 19% of motor and 18% of home insurance) and you are looking at around £150m a year going from the pockets of solicitors to insurance companies for the privilege of receiving cases. And that’s before the £100m or so insurers make every year from credit hire referral fees.
