Oxbow Partners has predicted the UK motor market will return to profit this year with a combined operating ratio of 94% versus a 102% rate in 2023.

The specialists listed this was due in part to a change in accounting standards but mainly driven by record price increases of 25% whereas it had predicted 16% hikes. The rises will also earn through this year.
