European Court of Justice Ruling
The European Court of Justice has ruled that insurers can no longer consider gender when calculating premiums and setting benefits. Insurers opposed this ruling because gender has always been an important factor when assessing risks - claims statistics show that there are different risk profiles for males and females. While disappointed with the ruling, insurers must comply with it.
