Insurance Cares: 50% of financial consumers could be vulnerable


A report by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has revealed that up to 50% of financial services consumers could be classified as vulnerable.

The report – the Financial Lives Survey – found that “half of UK consumers currently show one or more characteristics of potential vulnerability (25.6m) – they may be at increased risk of harm, or would suffer disproportionately, if harm occurred”.

The research revealed that vulnerable customers were less likely to hold “any form of insurance”.
