Webinar - Commercial Property 2022 Rate Increases

Wednesday, 26 January 2022
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
    • Alan Chandler, Chartered Insurer, Insurance Training & Consultancy

A combination of higher materials and labour costs will mean insurers are likely to need 9% increases just to stand still. However, given most need additional rate strength of around 6% to balance their loss-making property books, this will mean policyholders looking at rate increases of around 15% in 2022 on top of the 2021 increases!

Given the rebuild cost inflation is so high the already significant worry of property under insurance in the UK is going to get worse. It is estimated that over 80% of policies have incorrect property sums insured and that is before the 2022 cost increases. This presentation looks at the major issue of under insurance in the UK property insurance market, why it is getting worse and how to help your clients avoid the under-insurance trap.

The presentation, delivered by Alan Chandler one of the UK's most popular insurance presenters, will look at what clients need to take into when settling Buildings sums insured. Alan will explore why under insurance is so common, the effects of under insurance for the client and why under insurance is an increasing cause of Professional Indemnity claims against brokers.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why property rebuild costs in the UK are increasing at 9% and why UK insurers still need rate strength on top of this.
