WEBINAR - FCA test case on Business Interruption Insurance (NOW FULLY BOOKED)

  • Wed 15 Jul 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm
  • Zoom - Webinar
    • Branko Bjelobaba

This comprehensive and interactive one hour webinar will focus on the FCA’s ground-breaking test case at the High Court. While the full hearing won’t begin until 20 July 2020 (and is scheduled to take 8 days) we have already had two days of initial arguments and some of the insurers’ counsel have made interesting responses to the issues being raised by the FCA. The FCA has conducted a huge amount of assessment of a number of wordings (1,200 brokers and clients alike fed into their request for information) and this event will examine the weaknesses in some and the strengths in others and illustrate the dangers inherent in unclear wordings. Insurers and brokers have new requirements imposed on them as a result of FS20/8 (effective from 17 June 2020). At the same time it will highlight the exposure for insurance brokers all of whom will have arranged these covers for clients (and some will be classed as co-manufacturers under PROD) and encourage them to reassess their advice process under ICOBS and their overriding professional duty to clients.
