FCA Consumer Duty and Product Governance for General Insurance

  • Fri 23 Sep 10:00 am – 11:00 am
    • Branko Bjelobaba FCII

The FCA want to see a higher level of consumer protection in retail financial markets, where firms compete vigorously in the interests of consumers and they wish to drive a healthy and successful financial services system in which firms can thrive and consumers can make informed choices about financial products and services. They consider that firms are not consistently and sufficiently prioritising good consumer outcomes and this causes consumer harm and erodes consumer trust. With final rules published on 27 July 2022 this talk will update you as to what now will be needed. This General Insurance focused session will also include an update on Product Value Assessments that have to be completed by 30 September (note the FCA have criticised insurers for their lack of progress with this) and have given brokers an extension of 90 days so as to prevent customer harm. Both brokers and insurers have an important role to play and this session will ensure you understand what it is you have to do. We will also cover the current position on multi-occupancy insurances following intervention by the government (very much part of the product governance and value assessments work).

Online CPD: Adapting Portfolios for Inflation

  • Fri 16 Sep 10:00 am – 11:30 am
    • Henry Cobbe, Elston Consulting

Inflation is on the rise, and it's distorting both equity and bond performance. Advisers relying on traditional "long-run" models need to rethink portfolios to ensure inflation resilience. Within equities, value-investing is making a comeback. Traditional bonds are under pressure as they can't keep pace with inflation, so are failing to offer either capital protection or diversification. Alternatives require careful risk budgeting and focus on liquidity. In this workshop, we look at ways advisers can build-in inflation resilience to portfolios, based on lessons from the past.

  • Mon 14 Feb 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
  • Online
    • Alan Chandler

A combination of higher materials and labour costs will mean insurers are likely to need 9.6% increases just to cover rebuild cost inflation in the UK. 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! 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.
