APPROXIMATELY two in five Slovaks have no form of commercial insurance.
This is the outcome of a survey conducted in March by the GfK Slovakia polling company, which surveyed a sample of 1,000 respondents aged between 15 and 79, the SITA newswire wrote.
One third of respondents reported owning capital mixed life insurance. The second most popular product, which almost one in four of the respondents had, was accident insurance. Investment insurance came in third.
Investment insurance has grown more popular over the past year, with 12 percent of Slovaks owning it.
The survey also showed that nearly one in four of the respondents did not have property insurance.
Half of families reported using mandatory car insurance and homeowners insurance products, almost one in three respondents had homeowners insurance, and about 16 percent had car accident insurance.
