The Financial Times reports there is a "sea of unclaimed assets sloshing around the financial system" very conservatively estimated to be worth £77 billion!

Assets are considered dormant when contact with the owner is lost - typically due to a name change after marriage or divorce, an unreported change of address or expired postal forwarding order, and incomplete or illegible records.

It's important to note millions of family members remain unaware they’re entitled to collect unclaimed assets owed deceased relatives, who passed on without leaving updated financial records for their heirs.

The majority of this lost money comes from dormant bank accounts, orphan pensions, unknown windfalls, missing shares and abandoned dividends, forgotten life insurance policies, National Savings Certificates and Premium Bonds which have not been redeemed. But also included is £300 million in unclaimed National Lottery winnings!
