The Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) Insuring Women’s Futures has launched a major new report into the trends in risk that are disproportionately borne by women.
Securing the financial future of the next generation identifies six ‘Moments that Matter’ in women’s lives, highlighting 12 ‘Perils and Pitfalls’ that aggregate in these moments, together with potential interventions for the profession to consider in collaboration with policymakers and regulators to improve women’s risk resilience.
Insuring Women’s Futures is a market initiative established by the CII to promote and enhance the profession’s role in relation to women and risk. The research coincides with the launch of a Market Task Force, composed of 15 senior executives from across the insurance and financial planning profession who will prioritise and progress actions to improve financial outcomes for women and the profession’s engagement with society.
Sian Fisher, CEO, Chartered Insurance Institute commented “We need to act now because if we don’t address this, we will not have the resources to sustain the current situation. To help drive this change we have established the Insuring Women’s Futures Market Task Force to work with the profession and collaborate with policymakers to effect innovative and broad change”
