TORONTO, January 31, 2007 - Today, Kanetix® (www.kanetix.ca), Canada's insurance marketplace, released the results of a study that show the average age of shoppers getting online life insurance quotes through Kanetix.ca was 42 in 2006.
"Life insurance is typically purchased when a person is going through the stages of life, typically referred to as life events," explains Gregory Ellis, Co-founder of Kanetix. "These are times in a person's life, like getting married, starting a family, buying a home, starting a business and retiring, when financial protection is needed most. By age 42, most Canadians have reason to need life insurance, whether it's to protect a mortgage, business partner or loved ones, and it only makes sense this is the average age when we come to fully appreciate and understand those needs."
