Compliments of the Season to All

bigstock-Happy-Holidays-4091399I cannot recall having so many requests for information or urgent jobs before Christmas before and hence, I have been working every waking moment and have not had time to post articles to my beloved blog.

I have heaps to write about and hopefully over the next few weeks I will get it all down on paper and I will time them to come up regularly from mid January.

In the meantime, I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday period and hope that 2014 is kind to you.

Thanks for your support and your questions during 2013. I  look forward to bashing out some interesting material next year on the blog. Take care till then.

Guest post on Reinstatement and Replacement

Capture BrisbaneRegular contributor Adam Matteson of Arch Underwriting at Lloyd’s shares his view on whether reinstatement and replacement is the appropriate basis of settlement in all cases.

The catalyst of the presentation is the recent fire in Brisbane in an old home adjacent to the Greek Club and the fact that with zoning changes in many cities the industry increasingly are seeing risks where the Insured does not have an intention to reinstate following a loss.

The attached presentation tries to provide some framework, and options,  to assist brokers and underwriters. If you are asked for a time for each slide, please turn it off and hit next when you have had a chance to read or listen to the slide/video.

Thanks Adam for sharing.
