Vulnerable Clients - Devon

  • Wed 12 Sep 2:45 pm – 3:45 pm
  • The Future Inn Hotel
    • Alan Chandler

The FCA have found following a thematic review that Vulnerable Customers are often not treated fairly. In fact, many insurers pricing models have taken significant advantage of these customers, often the more vulnerable the customer the more the insurers has loaded rates at renewal. Some of the UK’s largest institutions have been guilty of proactively targeting these individuals and the regulator has had enough of insurers and brokers balancing their books on the most vulnerable in society.

The Practicalities of Trust – Improving the Ethical Side of your Decision Making

  • Fri 01 Sep 8:30 am – 10:00 am
  • Holiday Inn

We are all good people, but when it comes to ethics and ‘doing the right thing’, do we always make good decisions? What does ‘a good decision’ look like from an ethical perspective, and how do we translate that into the everyday world of insurance? I’ll be exploring the ethical side of decision making, using typical insurance activities as a backdrop, and looking at practical steps we can all take to be that bit better at it next time round. And as we all work in teams and firms, I’ll go on to look at the role that ethics plays in leadership and at how to lift the ethical performance of the people we lead.
