VULNERABLE CUSTOMERS

  • Wed 10 Jul 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
  • Online
    • Alan Chandler

The FCA have found following a thematic review that vulnerable customers are often not treated fairly. In fact, many Insurers pricing models have taken significant advantage of these customers, often the more vulnerable the customer the more the insurer has loaded rates at renewal. Some of the UK's largest institutions have been guilty of proactively targeting these individuals and the regulator has had enough of Insurers and brokers balancing their books on the most vulnerable in our society.

A PLAIN ENGLISH OVERVIEW OF CONTRACTORS INSURANCE

  • Mon 29 Jul 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Online
    • Alan Chandler

From small builder to plumbers through to large building firms there are an increasing number of contractors needing insurance, often due to the fact that building firms now take on contractors rather than employees. These contractors need professional guidance on their insurance needs, and this presentation will outline the main factors to be taken into account. As an example, would a small building firm really understand the difference between labour-only and bona-fide sub-contractors, if they do not have a broker they are in big trouble, as the Insurance Act 2015 says they must make a fair presentation of risk, without help how do they do this?
