Ogden Tables (discount rate changes on Personal Injury claims)

Quy Mill Hotel, Cambridge
Tuesday, 16 January 2018
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
    • Alan Chandler, Chartered Insurer


This presentation is a must for anyone working within the general insurance industry as it covers arguably the most important topic to hit the industry in over ten years. The Ogden table changes will cost the UK insurance industry over £7 billion in a one-off adjustment and in excess of £2 billion per annum thereafter. Rates will rise by between 10-20% on a lot of classes of business, especially after the renewal of reinsurance treaties because reinsurance premiums are expected to double. It is essential brokers can explain the premium hikes to their clients and this presentation will enable them to achieve this, as well as providing underwriters and claims staff with a clear understanding of how their roles will be affected. The presentation is aimed at all levels and will be pitched to give a clear understanding for all.

Alan Chandler has undertaken operational management roles in three major global companies. NatWest Insurance Services, RBS Insurance Group and Allianz Insurance. He has run underwriting, broking and claims functions. Ten years ago he set up his own training company, something that he had always longed to do as he is passionate about training. Since then he has trained well over a thousand people to become ACII qualified.
