Ukraine and its impact on the terrorism and political violence insurance market

Online event
Wednesday, 29 November 2023
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Charles Berry FCII, Founding Director, BPL Global
  • London Market

In this IIL London Market webinar, Charles Berry talks about terrorism and political violence (PV) in the insurance market. The stand-alone terrorism and political violence insurance market has run a spectacular trajectory since 9/11. Recently losses from the Ukraine war and from civil unrest around the world have taken the market into more choppy waters. This webinar places the market in context; highlights its strengths and weaknesses; and suggests what its future might look like.

This session will cover:

  • Review the PV/War risks spectrum
  • Look at losses in its three main areas: terrorism; civil unrest; and conflicts
  • Assess the PV insurance market’s offering in each of these areas
  • Introduce the six strategies used by PV insurers and underwriters in the other market silos involved in writing war risks to enable them to write the class on a sound basis
  • Look to the future of the PV market

Learning objectives:

  • Further insight into the risks and threats from the current geopolitical climate
  • A better understanding of the coverages available
  • A growing appreciation of the differences between insuring the deliberate acts of mankind, as opposed to the accidents of nature.

This session will not be recorded, so a playback will not be available for members who do not attend the live event - Chatham House rules.

Chair: Geraldine Wright, Company Secretary, LIIBA
