The Insurance Society of Edinburgh is happy to announce their next webinar will discuss the future of underwriting.

Join Royal London where they will take a back-to-basics look at the basics of underwriting before exploring how COVID-19 is changing the way protection providers are approaching underwriting, the impact the pandemic is having on claims and how they’re adapting their protection proposition to make their products more adaptable to the fast changing lives of advisers and their clients. The session will also look at some of the new initiatives being delivered to support advisers with their protection conversations during the pandemic.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you should be able to:

  • Explain how COVID-19 had changed the way many protection providers might approach their underwriting, claims and product propositions both now and in the future
  • Describe some of the recent enhancements Royal London have made to their underwriting and claims processes

The webinar will be delivered by Gregor Sked – Protection Development and Technical Manager at Royal London.

Gregor’s exposure to financial services began back in 2011. Most of his early career was spent at Standard Life where he was a presenter in the workplace pension engagement team. He joined Royal London in 2018 to spend more time on protection in the Intermediary market. Gregor is involved in developing adviser facing content, presenting, writing articles and commenting for the press.
