Business Interruption Insurance - all you need to know, explained in plain English. Three hours with a break.

Thursday, 07 January 2021
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
    • Alan Chandler



Presented by Alan Chandler, one of the UK's most popular insurance presenters. Alan will take this opportunity to run through how business interruption insurance should be correctly set up. Alan will lift the myths away from BI and show how, in his easy to understand style, you can get this cover on a correct footing going forward. The presentation will include looking at how insurance gross profit differs from accounting gross profit, how sums insured should be correctly set, how to advise around indemnity periods, the difference between ICW and AICW as well as taking a journey through all the relevant BI extensions including a look at advanced loss of profits.

The webinar will last three hours and will be split into two to allow for a break. The first half of the presentation will look at setting correct BI sums insured and the second half of the presentation will look at advising correctly on BI extensions.

Given all the challenges that occurred with BI cover in 2020 this is a most timely webinar, to aid members to ensure they set up correct coverage for policyholders in 2021.
