UK - ethnic minority penalty for car insurance
Wednesday, 08 10 2016, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: United Kingdom
Millions of people living in areas with a high density of minority ethnic households are paying an “ethnic penalty” of up to £450 a year each in higher car insurance premiums, according to a report co-written by the former equality commissioner Trevor Phillips.
The study said there was a strong statistical link between the proportion of minority ethnic households in an area and the cost of car insurance, and added that the phenomenon existed in well-off and poorer areas.
