Publication date


This interim report presents a snapshot of women's and men's risks in life in Britain today, and their resilience to shocks and preparedness for later life. It is not focused on specific insurance or financial products or services. Rather, it takes a holistic view of life risks in society today, and seeks to glean a better understanding of women’s risks and their exposures. By doing so, it highlights the potential scope for the insurance profession to play a greater role in protecting women, and society as a whole.
