We are delighted to welcome Alan Chandler for this face to face training workshop.

Session Overview:

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.

Ask a Pi solicitor which Pi claims are the easiest to deal with, and they nearly always say broker Pi claims because you just have to settle! – brokers time and again fail to professionally train staff and record key things in a correct manner, meaning that when these claims go to court there is often no defence.

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.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session, delegates will be able to:

• Understand why broker error and omission claims are increasing
• Understand how recent statutes are increasing the E&O risk
• Take positive action to mitigate these E&O risks
