According to Aviva’s Cost of Education research:

  • Just under half of parents (49%) say they have made no financial preparations to meet the cost of putting their children through third level education
  • On average, parents expect to pay out €5,122 a year to send a child to a third level college or university. If the student has to move away from home to go to college, the expected cost is almost double, at €10,125 (that’s over €40,000 for a four year degree per child!).
  • Over a third of families intending to put children through third level education have savings earmarked for this purpose

Aviva Research: Lack of Business Protection means some SMEs could face bankruptcy

Published on:

We spoke to Irish SMEs to better understand their Protection needs and their hopes for the future*:

Two out of three Irish SMEs rely on a single individual or a small group of individuals to generate profit
Half of them say the death or illness of a key individual would result in revenue loss
30% told us they’d cease to trade in the short to medium term or declare bankrupt
• Just 9% of business owners have either key person cover or shareholder protection in place.
