Insurtech Insider Episode 30: The Sexy Side of Insurance

43min listen

On the latest episode of Insurtech Insider, David and Nigel sit down with Edel Ryan and James Burrows.

David is back hosting with Nigel this week, joined by guests Edel Ryan and James Burrows both of whom are Partners at JLT.

We kick things off with a discussion on contingency insurance and how it relates to the sports, media and entertainment worlds. The entertainment industry faces growing risks and exposures. Extreme weather, power failure, public liability and terrorism reflect some of the on-going challenges and uncertainty threatening the success of events.

We take a look at death and disgrace (including what that even means), exploring the case studies around it, how technology is increasing the need for this kind of cover and how technology is helping provide this cover.

Next up we examine live events, the risks involved, what is actually being insured against and why it requires specialist cover. We also look at the new types of threat to live events and how that's affected the way policies are written.

We also discuss sports sponsorship, prize indemnity and what the future of the industry looks like as a whole and where the biggest risk to insurers is.

All that and much more on this week's episode of Insurtech Insider.
