- Which lines of business are most popular among SMEs?

Key Highlights
Verdict Financial estimates that UK SME insurance market GWP amounted to £6.1bn in 2013. The bulk of this consisted of micro-enterprises.

Public liability insurance was the most commonly purchased cover by SMEs, held by 71.4% of those surveyed by Verdict Financial. This roughly tallies with the product take-up observed in last year's survey, with 70.5% purchasing the cover.
