Tuesday, 02 June 2020
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
    • Alan Chandler

We are very pleased to have arranged for Alan to talk to us via this webinar on Zoom on a subject that is very relevant today.

Alan Chandler, who is one of the leading insurance trainers in the UK, will be giving sixty minute presentation entitled the Perfect Storm, will be exploring why capacity is draining out of the UK insurance market and why we are moving into a very hard market where niche covers will be difficult to place.

It is difficult to imagine a worse start to a year for the UK insurance market than 2020, and the problem is that the market was already in all sorts of trouble coming into 2020 !!

The presentation will be in a webinar format where delegates will be able to type in their questions for Alan as they go. Once registered you will be sent a link, click on this and at the allotted time Alan will start speaking and you will see his slides, you can type in questions you have after the presentation. You can view it from anywhere so it will not matter if you are working from home or office.

Learning objectives:

Delegates will be able to understand

  • How Solvency II has taken capacity from the insurance market
  • How the recent stock market crash will make capacity issues worse
  • How insurers have struggled because of the Ogden rate change and soft rates
  • How commercial property Insurers have probably had the worst start to a year from an underwriting perspective ever and what this will mean for rates and coverage
  • How the market will change following Covid-19 and how some risks may struggle to get any cover

Book early to ensure you do not miss this opportunity to engage with and put your questions directly to Alan on this Hot Topic.
