  • Wed 10 Jan 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
    • Branko Bjelobaba FCII,MIoD, Branko Ltd

What are the global threats facing the insurance industry right now and how are these impacting UK insurers and brokers? Today war, weather extremes and the cost of living crisis dominate public debate but the four biggest risks have not changed for a while now – cyber, regulation, climate change and technology. The sector appears to be rather relaxed regarding corporate governance but the failure to attract and retain the right talent is now rated in the top five risks. Will the wider impact of macro-economic factors continue to impact in terms of coverage, price/value and overall service delivery? This will be an interactive and wide-ranging talk and those attending will be actively encouraged to contribute with their own experiences. We will look at the differences in responses between insurers and brokers with brokers considering business conduct more of a concern than insurers.

  • Fri 06 Oct 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
    • Alan Chandler

Broker Professional Indemnity premiums are in many cases doubling which reflect the fact that Pi underwriters believe the possibility of claims against brokers has never been higher. This presentation will explore why the number of errors and omission claims against brokers are on the increase and how these can potentially be mitigated. Various new pieces of legislation including the brokers' duty under the Insurance Act 2015, GDPR and the Insurance Distribution Directive are making brokers more vulnerable than ever, which coupled with increased litigation in society, increased client expectations and ever higher regulatory demands mean that brokers cannot continue to do what they have always done, far more proactivity is required.
