>> Event Overview

It is estimated that 90% of policies have incorrect sums insured! This one hour presentation looks at the major issue of under insurance in the UK property market and how to help your clients avoiding the under insurance trap.

The webinar, delivered by Alan Chandler one of the UK's most popular insurance presenters, will look at what clients actually need to take into account when settling Buildings, Contents and Stock 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. One of the problems is that the figures on the clients balance sheet are not the same as those required for insurance purposes and Alan will point out the differences so that clients can be warned.

The presentation will examine Vat implications and look at common areas of misunderstanding including hard standing areas; and will be delivered in Alan's plain English style.

This webinar will be relevant for brokers, insurer staff and loss adjusters
