State of the Protection Nation 2018

We commissioned our State of the Protection Nation research to find out how people felt about their protection needs and the industry as a whole.

We attributed scores to the questions asked in the research (2,002 nationally representative UK adults aged 18+ and 200 advisers) which gave us an overall score that we call the State of the Protection Nation Index.
