Speaker: Branko Bjelobaba, Branko Ltd


General insurance brokers have had ICOB rules for 11 years now and there is still a lot of confusion and non-compliance. Why?! Do you know when you are giving advice or just providing information and when does one produce a statement of demands and needs and what goes in it? What about add-ons – especially the ban that comes into force on 1 April 2016? With brokers losing a number of large professional indemnity lawsuits isn’t it time that you fully understood your wide-ranging client obligations?

Learning objectives

By attending this event, delegates will be able to identify:

  • key requirements of ICOBs
  • the differences between providing information and giving advice
  • when to produce a statement of demands and needs and what goes in it
  • latest guidance on ‘add-ons’
