(GI) How to correctly advise your clients on setting correct indemnity periods under Business Interruption insurance policies

  • Mon 11 Apr 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
  • Online
    • Alan Chandler

Brokers increasingly face Pi claims for failing to advise clients correctly on setting appropriate Business Interruption indemnity periods. Recently a broker was successfully sued for failing to give any guidance around indemnity periods to a manufacturer who had a twelve-month indemnity period. Nothing was ever recorded by the broker about the fact that twelve months was almost certainly inadequate, in fact it was the Loss adjuster after the fire took place that educated the client on setting correct indemnity periods, unfortunately too late for all concerned. This webinar looks to make sure this does not happen to you or your staff. This one-hour webinar provided by Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK, will examine all the different factors a client needs to take into account when setting an indemnity period. The presentation will include guiding clients who are on a Gross Profit Bi basis, a Gross Revenue or Fees basis and will also include how an Increased Cost of working only policy should deal with prospective losses over 12 months.

(GI) Webinar: Property insurance. understanding why there will be 15% + rate increases in 2022

  • Wed 09 Mar 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Webinar: Property insurance. understanding why there will be 15% + rate increases in 2022 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! Imports of sawn wood increased by 73% during 2021, steel sections by 60%, the current inflation rate for rebuilding materials is 20.3% which is a record 40 year high. Policyholders MUST understand why this is happening and whether it will continue. This presentation will provide the answers. Given the rebuild cost inflation is so high, the already significant worry of property under insurance in the UK is going to get worse. It is estimated that over 80% of policies have incorrect property sums insured and that is before the 2022 rebuild cost increases. This webinar looks at the major issue of under insurance in the UK property insurance market, why it is getting worse and how to help your clients avoid the under-insurance trap. The presentation, delivered by Alan Chandler one of the UK's most popular insurance presenters, is a must for brokers, underwriters and claims staff alike.

(GI) How contract conditions can change the liability of an insured and why brokers must advise clients on this

  • Tue 22 Feb 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
  • Online
    • Alan Chandler

Many policyholders sign contracts without realising they are potentially exposing themselves to liabilities that are not covered by their insurances. Often these contracts are signed in order to either win business or obtain key supplies, either way they are extending their liability beyond the potential protection provided by the liability insurer. Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK, will explore what Public and Products liability policies normally cover and what the position is at law when the policyholder extends their liability beyond this by signing certain contracts. The webinar will include exploring the consequences of the Insurance Act 2015 for failing to make a fair presentation of risk with regards to contract conditions, and how failure to guide policyholders around this matter could lead to a claim being turned down and all cover cancelled.
