TAKING care of the pennies so the pounds took care of themselves was a discipline I’m sure most mothers knocked slowly into each of our heads. My mother was no different. On a regular basis, I run the cost of my life insurance through a comparison to ensure I’m paying the least for my cover that I should be, or that I am maximising the cover for the premium I’m paying. Most households have their mortgage and cost of living insured against, but disturbingly, 8.5 million breadwinners in the UK have no life insurance at all leaving the UK under insured by £263bn. I can’t imagine the desperation of a family having lost a loved one and breadwinner who can’t afford to pay off their mortgage and are then faced with repossession and eviction.

Unum Group <UNM.N> said on Wednesday that it had boosted long-term care reserves by $593 million, after taxes, partly reflecting its expectation that claims would remain elevated going forward. MetLife Inc <MET.N> and Genworth Financial Inc <GNW.N> are among those scheduled to report next week. Canada's Manulife Financial Corp <MFC.TO> is due to report on Nov. 7.
