VE Day 2020 - Lest we forget our past insurance colleagues and friends

06 May 2020

In a guest blog for youTalk-insurance, Managing Director Paul Handleigh reminds us to spare a thought for our past insurance colleagues and friends as part of our VE Day celebrations this Friday.   

Friday will be a cause for double celebration in my household. Admittedly the second cause for celebration will be more sombre, but it will be a celebration nonetheless.

Peter Blanc blog - 2020 market issues and Aston Lark’s Growth ambition

03 Jan 2020

2020 is going to bring some interesting challenges including:

How will the FCA try to deal with dual pricing?

How will government and the insurance industry work together to ensure that consumers and businesses are protected from increased flood risks?

As a country, how will we ensure that all blocks of flats clad in combustible material are remediated or the risks suitably mitigated?

Will we see a properly hard market with insurers pulling out of lines of business left, right and centre?
