This presentation entitled the Perfect Storm, 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.

John Neal CEO Lloyd’s of London has estimated Covid-19 will cost the insurance industry $203 billion nearly twice that of Katrina, making it by far the worst incident ever in the history of insurance, no wonder Oliver Bate CEO of Global giant Allianz has used the expression ‘the virus has hit insurers like a meteorite’.

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!!

Alan will explore how Solvency II, the recent stock market crash, the Ogden change, soft rating, recent 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.

Learning objectives
Delegates will be able to:
- Understand how Solvency II has taken capacity from the insurance market

- How insurers have struggled because of the Ogden rate change and soft rates

- How the market will change following Covid-19 and the effect it will have on wordings
