About this Session

This comprehensive and interactive one hour webinar will focus on the FCA’s ground-breaking test case at the High Court. Whilst the full hearing won’t begin until 20 July 2020 we have already had a day of initial arguments (and this will happen again on 26 June 2020) and some of the insurers’ counsel have made interesting responses to the issues being raised by the FCA.

The FCA have conducted a huge amount of assessment of a number of wordings (1,200 brokers and clients alike fed into their request for information) and this event will examine the weaknesses in some and the strengths in others and illustrate the dangers inherent in unclear wordings. Insurers and brokers have new requirements imposed on them as a result of FS20/8 (effective from 17 June 2020). At the same time it will highlight the exposure for insurance brokers all of whom will have arranged these covers for clients and encourage them to reassess their advice process under ICOBS and their professional duty to clients.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar delegates will gain insights into:

  • Overview of the Test Case and why brought
  • Illustration of weak and strong wordings
  • What FS20/8 requires insurers and brokers to do
  • Threat to brokers in terms of the advice process
  • Revisit ICOBS and ensure your sales process is robust
