One of the many things the Covid-19 pandemic has taught the insurance industry is the importance of going through the various BI extensions with clients and documenting these discussions. Failure to do this could leave the broker wide open to a PI claim against them.

This presentation looks specifically at BI extensions, the purpose of each one of them and how in each case an incident could give rise to a claim. Many in the industry have an incorrect view of extensions, for example many discuss utilities extension cover with clients when they really mean terminal ends, so give a wrong impression of the coverage their policy is actually providing.

This webinar, in plain English style, details how these essential additions to cover operate. In addition it will look at advanced loss of profits and examine why this is so under sold.

This presentation will be appropriate for brokers, underwriters, claims staff and loss adjusters.
