The Citizens Advice complaint, which cuts across all market sectors, has triggered a more detailed investigation into dual pricing in insurance by the Financial Conduct Authority.
Gary Dixon, the chairman of the Association of Independent Non-Executive Directors, said super complaints were not brought “wily-nilly”.
“They research long and hard to ensure that their cases are ironclad and will result in significant insurance market change,” said Dixon.
He pointed to the widespread fallout from payment protection insurance, which was raised originally as a super complaint.
Dixon added: “My advice to the chair of any board in the insurance sector is to look very, very carefully at the policies driven by the board and the composition of the board itself.
“Does the board contain someone sufficiently independent to stand up for the rights of the consumers and ensure that changes are made? After all, any such changes now should help avoid the potential downsides of future compensation and redress.”
