>> Event Overview

This presentation will be exploring why capacity is draining out of the UK insurance market and why we are moving into a very hard market where niche covers will be difficult to place.

It is difficult to imagine a worse start to a year for the UK insurance market than 2020, and the problem is that the market was already in all sorts of trouble coming into 2020 !!

The presentation will be delivered by Alan Chandler who is one of the most popular presenters in the UK insurance market.

Alan will explore how Solvency II, the recent stock market crash,Ogden, Soft rating , Floods and now Bi and Covid-19 have all combined to create the perfect storm and how rates will have to significantly increase with many high risk businesses facing the prospect of getting no alternative quotes.
