Terrorism and political violence: risk without borders
The nature of terrorism and political violence risk has been changing over the years. Property damage and the associated business interruption (sometimes without damage) or even third party liability can come not just from terrorism and sabotage but also strikes and civil commotion, war and civil war. This evolving nature of risk changes the industries that are affected, how they are impacted and the solutions they need.
At this industry stream, we consider the different risks and available solutions. Which industries are most affected? What kind of enterprises are most vulnerable? And what are the implications on the property side, financial losses or bodily injury?
Our expert speakers will guide our audience through this changing landscape in an interactive and fascinating workshop. Joanna Hitchcock, War & Terror Senior Underwriter for Europe will explain types of insurance coverages available and factors to consider. Stéphane Pénet from the Fédération Francaise de l’Assurance will explain the pools in place in Europe for bodily injury, property damage and business interruption; the challenges and sustainability of these State pools and how they are funded and work.
Delegates will leave with a broad understanding of the industries that are most affected, how they are impacted and the solutions available to them.
