Gibbs Laidler Risk and Insurance Annual Conference 2021
Prior to Covid-19 we had already started to see changes for insurance and risk within the industry. From markets starting to ‘harden’, with professional indemnity premiums rapidly increasing (despite the majority of the sector having no claims), to the level of information required by insurers, in particular on higher value buildings. Add the repercussions of a nationwide lockdown, we can expect to see more drastic changes which will require us to be more innovative in the way we approach insurance and risk in future. We can expect Insurers to inevitably change their approach to the cover (or even lack of it) for Covid-19 following the estimated £1.2bn expected in insurance pay-outs, £900m of which the Association of British Insurers predicts will be for Business Interruption alone. In addition, we have already seen short term adaptations to risk assessment strategy in order to accommodate for the lockdown procedure which we expect to see challenging the likes of disrepair claims in future. These are just a few examples among many where Covid-19 procedures have created a knock-on effect for Housing Associations approach to insurance and risk.
Whilst Covid-19 will still be on everybody’s agenda for the next 18 months and we will be including elements of Covid-19 risk and insurance within the conference programme, we will also be considering other key topics that as a sector we face on a day to day basis.
As we work on putting together the full conference programme, those who attend are guaranteed plenty of opportunity to network, as well as sharing experiences with both sector colleagues and the speakers.
The conference is again over two days and one night, with the cost remaining at £225 for our current clients and £350 for non-clients (all inclusive of VAT).
