'Does my BI policy Cover COVID-19?'
The UK government said that by declaring Covid-19 a notifiable disease it would trigger Business interruption policies so that they will cover any losses - we will explore whether this statement is correct. It is essential that brokers, underwriters and claims staff alike have a full understanding of what the correct commercial insurance position is on the virus that is disrupting all our lives. It is not just policyholders who are asking this question, we all know friends and family who run small businesses and they will be asking anyone who works in insurance what the position is and why. This presentation will give you the answers. Alan will explore briefly the background of Business interruption cover in the UK and focus specifically on the Bi extensions that may or may not cover Covid-19. It will be done in Alan's plain English style so that you can go away and feel confident in talking about how Bi cover responds to the biggest issue of the day.
