Income Protection and Critical Illness Cover - UK - May 2011
This report looks at the long-term protection market, focusing on CIC and IP. It assesses the factors that influence the market, such as mortgage lending, as well as recent political, regulatory and legislative changes. Competing products (namely PPI) are looked at before assessing the size of the market and its growth in recent years. A summary of the key players in the market is presented along with their respective market shares. The report concludes with a consumer-oriented analysis of the market covering product ownership, attitudes and price expectations.
This report looks at both the income protection and the critical illness cover markets. These are long-term protection products that either pay out a lump sum should the policyholder contract a specific serious illness (in the case of CIC), or a regular monthly income should the policyholder be unable to work due to illness or injury (in the case of IP).
The short-term protection market – namely payment protection insurance (PPI) – does feature in this report, but only from the perspective of it being a competing product. Term assurance may also feature in this report, but again, only from a secondary perspective.
