Value Of Typical Brit Revealed

A study carried out by Post Office Insurance has found that GBP350,000 is the average value the typical UK adult places on themselves having totted up their assets.

The Post Office Insurance team wanted people to take the time to appreciate their value, even in very simple terms, so they might appreciate the fact that life insurance is something that cannot afford to be ignored. Having seen what the average value of a person was 39 percent of respondents immediately said they better arrange life insurance since they were worth much more than they thought.

Although the average was GBP350,000 London was much higher than anywhere else in the country, with the average there more like GBP500,000. This is mainly down to much higher property prices said a Post Office Insurance spokesman, though the higher salaries earned in the capital would also mean that higher levels of life cover were needed.
