Survey findings will be revealed at the COVER Claims & Underwriting Forum on Tuesday 22 September
Ahead of the COVER Claims & Underwriting Forum, our virtual conference on Tuesday 22 September, we are asking protection advisers to fill out a short survey about the impact of Covid-19 on their claims and underwriting experiences over the past five months. It should not take longer than a minute or two.
The findings will be revealed during a keynote session at the event from Alea Risk's Andrew Wibberley titled ‘The impact of Covid-19 on access to insurance'.
The Covid-19 crisis brought with it a raft of underwriting changes to protection policies in light of a novel virus that caused a worldwide pandemic. As the virus spread rapidly, insurers understandably had to review their ability to offer cover, especially for those with Covid-19 symptoms or considered particularly at risk to coronavirus.
In his keynote session, Andrew Wibberley will weigh up the reasons for these underwriting changes, while considering the unknown long-term effects of the virus and its potential impact on access to insurance going forward.
