Wednesday, 22 February 2017
The over-50s market is often treated as one segment, but there is huge scope to capitalize upon its diversity by focusing less on age and more on life stage when targeting products and services according to the company’s latest reports: “Targeting the Over 50s with General Insurance” and “Targeting the Over 50s with Life Insurance”.

EY Study indicates positive outlook for the UK, but businesses must operate with caution post-Brexit
Tuesday, 21 February 2017
“Statistics released by Ernst & Young offer positive reading for Britain’s post-Brexit prospects, with the Office for Budget Responsibility’s (OBR) forecast expected to lower borrowing predictions and revise UK GDP up to 1.6% from 1.4%. Nonetheless business leaders must prepare for the long term challenges, as the true impact of Brexit remains unknown and won’t be felt until well after Article 50 is invoked. Business growth and opportunity will become even harder to secure, although UK entrepreneurs remain optimistic about prospects; our research plainly highlighted the challenges with 64% of businesses already seeing Brexit damage potential growth.

NuData Security comments on fraud costing the UK £125 billion each year
Monday, 20 February 2017
Please see below for a reactionary comment from Ryan Wilk, director at fraud prevention company, NuData Security.   “These enormous fraud losses, two-thirds greater than the UK’s entire GDP, are astounding. The magnitude of these losses can’t help but have a dampening effect on the economies of the ten countries studied, and be noticeably impactful to businesses who are experiencing up to 6.5% of losses of expenditure-- a 43% increase in fraud since 2008 per the report. It’s also bad news for consumers, who often bear the brunt of many direct costs (especially in account takeover and new account fraud). It’s absolutely no wonder that consumers are pushing back on companies to improve security, holding them accountable for it, yet still wanting to have a good experience going through the gates.

According to the Office for National Statistics, the number of people aged 75 and over is projected to rise by 89.3%, to 9.9 million, by mid-2039[1], yet, worryingly, the current range of mortgages on offer do not meet the needs of over-55s. With many clients too young for equity release and high-street lenders often saying no to lending into retirement, the needs of the older consumer are not being met within the mortgage industry.
