A plain English overview of contractors insurance
From small builder to plumbers through to large building firms there are an increasing number of contractors needing insurance often due to the fact that building firms now take on contractors rather than employees. These contractors need professional guidance on their insurance needs and this presentation will outline the main factors to be taken into account. As an example would a small building firm really understand the difference between labour-only and Bona-fide sub-contractors, if they do not have a broker they are in big trouble as the Insurance Act 2015 says they must make a fair presentation of risk, without help how do they do this? The presentation, delivered by Alan Chandler one of the most popular insurance presenters in the UK, will look at the main insurance needs of a contractor. The webinar will include looking at contract works cover, understanding contractor liability cover including non-negligence cover, understanding the Business Interruption cover including understanding how to add fines and damages to the contractors’ policy and why current limits of indemnity are often not sufficient. The contractors sector will suffer badly from the hardening market and this presentation will look at how you can best get your clients’ needs correctly arranged

Webinar: Motor Legal Expenses Insurance
Motor Legal Expenses (MLE) is a class of insurance frequently misunderstood, overlooked or dismissed altogether. For many claimants however, MLE can be a vital form of cover, and one which is changing significantly with the upcoming implementation of the Civil Liability Act. This important legal instrument is set to make sweeping changes to the way both personal injury and ULR claims are handled and calls for major changes in the way MLE is worded, priced and sold. The wide variety of policies, cover, and marketing options can be confusing for clients and sometimes for insurance professionals. This webinar seeks to demystify MLE and to clarify what needs to be taken into account when considering and recommending cover to clients. The webinar will be of value to those involved in Motor claims, underwriting, broking or anyone wishing to widen their knowledge of a highly topical and fast-moving aspect of general insurance.

CANCELLED: Annual Dinner 2021
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, with numbers likely to be limited to smaller numbers for the foreseeable future, we have taken the disappointing decision to cancel the 2021 dinner. After cancelling the 2020 dinner we were hopeful that we would be able to stage the dinner this year, but this doesn’t look possible. We are so much looking forward to seeing you all when the time allows.
