Listen Now: First Airmic podcast addresses the harsh market

Airmic Talks, a new fortnightly podcast discussing the hot topics within the UK’s risk and insurance management community, is now available on iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud and any other podcast app.

The first episode, released on 1 March, features an in-depth discussion on the harsh market with leading members Mark Dawson, Chair of Airmic’s Insurance Steering Group and now Head of Insurance at Dyson, and Scott Feltham, Group Insurance Manager at Compass Group.

Both members shared their experiences of the hardening market over the past 18 months and shared their advice of how risk and insurance professionals can navigate it effectively.

Speaking on Airmic Talks, Mr Dawson said: “This hard market is potentially effective more lines of coverage than the last hard market … and it is not just a question of pricing increases or pricing correction as insurers would say. Capacity is shrinking, coverages are being reduced, lower limits are being offered, removal of extensions and claims are being scrutinised.”

Airmic Talks is presented and produced by Airmic’s Content Producer Richard Cutcher and will be addressing different topics every fortnight, featuring Association members and partners. The next episode of Airmic Talks will be released on Sunday, 15 March and will focus on Coronavirus and supply chains.
