Webinar - Understanding the implications of policy exclusions following covid-19
We know pretty much the whole market will apply some sort of pandemic exclusion for pandemics/covid-19 or more worryingly the words communicable diseases will be used, this starts bringing all sorts of extra scenarios that will be excluded for clients. Importantly, this will be for liability as well as property and Bi and could leave a policyholder with a lawsuit that is not covered by their insurance policy. All insurance staff need to understand the law relating to exclusions. This webinar will take delegates on a plain English walk on how the law applies to policy exclusions and proximate cause, so that they can explain to clients clearly and confidently the implications of the differing communicable disease exclusions that will be applied to your policyholders wordings.

Webinar - Seafarer Crisis - what has happened and where do we go from here
The crisis affecting seafarers will lead to shipowners and their insurers in all likelihood facing claims from ship’s crew members. This 1.5 hour webinar will raise awareness around the issues affecting the crews of all vessels worldwide since the pandemic started and that charters may start to be rejected due to a ship’s crew having been on board for excessive periods, raising safety concerns. Vessels will then be laid up around the world with potentially no crew being available, as there is almost certainly going to be a decline in the profession.
