Hospitality and Leisure Liability 2020 and Beyond

2020-03-18T14:28:02+11:00March 18th, 2020|

The market for placing liability insurance for hospitality & leisure businesses continues to significantly harden. Underwriting Agencies, generally backed by Lloyds syndicates, have been the traditional home for these speciality occupations for a decade or more. Over the course of the past 12 months we have seen several agencies either loose binder arrangements or have their appetite & capacities significantly curtailed. This is on top of significant rate [...]

Construction Liability

2020-02-11T14:54:34+11:00February 11th, 2020|

Years of premium discounting, coupled with deteriorating results, saw the General Liability market begin to harden during 2019. Insurers are looking to turn those results around with many in the Lloyd’s market significantly reducing their capital exposure in this area. We can expect to see this continue, even strengthen in 2020. One of the sectors coming under particular scrutiny is that of Construction Liability. This is one of [...]
