STATEMENT REGARDING NATIONAL AIDS TRUST – ACCESS TO FINANCIAL PRODUCTS FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV 

Chris Morgan, Lead Financial Adviser, Unusual Risks Mortgage & Insurance Services

“We welcome any initiative that helps to raise awareness of accessibility of financial products within the HIV Community. We are very pleased to have been consulted and be supporting this extensive report from National AIDS Trust. This is the first time that a HIV organisation based in England has looked at financial issues.”

“Our lead financial adviser Chris Morgan has been campaigning around these issues for nearly two decades and we also believe there is still a great amount work left to do in securing equality for people living with HIV. Several of the “Key Findings” of the report have similarities to some of our previously published research”.

“For example, only 51% of survey respondents thought that Life Insurance is available to people living with HIV, despite it being available since its launch in 2009 . This shows there is still a great amount of work to be done to raise awareness of financial products amongst people living with HIV”.

“We also note the concerns that respondents had in the report over disclosures relating to their medical information. Unusual Risks have great experience in protecting a person’s medical information and their confidentiality. We realise how important this issue is within the HIV Community”.

“Chris Morgan led the campaign that secured Life Assurance for people living with HIV in 2009 and  there are still many products that are inaccessible to people living HIV such as Income Protection and Critical Illness Cover (IPP & CIC). We continue to encourage the Association of British Insurers to make IPP & CIC available to people living with HIV”.

“We really do hope that any extra awareness created by this report will encourage people living with HIV to look after their financial future and seek advice from a firm specialising in advice for people living with HIV . Unusual Risks are committed to representing the HIV community within the financial services industry”.
