About the event

In this light-hearted and fun webinar specifically designed for Halloween, Jeff Heasman will take us through what products related to the paranormal actually exist in the market and what claims insurers have or are likely to encounter.

Can you insure against paranormal activity? Have you ever thought about the risks associated with insuring a haunted house or a ghost hunter? Is the presence of paranormal activity a material fact that needs to be declared? What claims have insurers been faced with in the past related to paranormal activities?

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • understand how the more unusual risks are catered for by the insurance market, especially in property insurance.

  • identify through case studies how the market has responded to requests to insure paranormal activity.

  • implement a strategy to handle enquiries related to things that may go bump in the night this Halloween.
