For ten years, the same film has been played around borrower insurance, which helps households repay their mortgage in the event of a hard blow. “These are above all political decisions, we are constantly changing the rules,” sighs an excellent connoisseur, while a law to be adopted this Thursday by the National Assembly proposes to further simplify the rules of the game.

Clearly, allowing households to choose an independent insurer, and not necessarily the insurance subsidiary of the bank that granted the credit. On the other hand, the banks are steadfastly opposed to this movement, accusing the “pure players” of insurance of targeting young executives in good health, in order to better abandon elderly clients or those in fragile health. “Parliamentarians should stop believing that snatching clients from us is really a good thing,” squeaks a banker.
