  • Critical illness scores highly for both relevance to and concern among consumers.
  • Children's health and critical illness insurance are the most under-sold forms of cover.
  • Londoners are more likely to acquire many types of cover than their counterparts elsewhere in the UK, especially for policies related to personal health and financial commitments.
  • Since 2007, take-up rates for loan and credit card payment protection cover have declined rapidly.
