Understanding Vessel and Insuring Marine Vessel Part 2

28 September, 15 October & 2 November 2021  
11.00 a.m. – 12.30 p.m. (MY Time) (Timezone Converter)

 

Hull & Machinery insurance is a significant subject because ships sail around the world, they are owned by people of diverse cultures, they operate in different weather conditions, they carry different cargoes; and the vessels are built to a variety of different standards and operated by individuals and companies with many different skill sets. In addition to this, the many clauses used all around the world, maritime law, general average, and all the different conventions that may (or may not) apply – makes for an interesting career and is not something that can be learned quickly.

This 12-session series will largely benefit personnel in the beginner and intermediate levels. Those in the beginner level will be able to understand the basics of the maritime industry and those in the intermediate level will gain from some topics as refresher and get a better understanding of the overall subject. Specifically, session 12 looks at the drilling contractor’s mobile equipment offering a brief insight into another industry based at sea – the search for different sources of energy.

Session 1 - Passenger Vessels Plus General Average, Sue & Labour, And Salvage Contracts Including Lloyd’s Open Form.
28 September 2021, 11.00 A.M. - 12.30 P.M.


This session offers a mix of topics about the various exposures presented by passenger vessels, both large and small, before moving on to explaining the unique concept of General Average and how it operates and finally Sue & Labour and Salvage Contracts; and how the unique Lloyd’s Open Form “no cure no pay” concept works.

Session 2 - Dredgers Plus Vessel Classification, Survey and Seaworthiness - The Issues.
15 October 2021, 11.00 a.m. - 12.30 p.m.


Dredgers come in all shapes and sizes and utilize both high tech and low tech methods of dredging. The presenter will demonstrate this clearly before moving on to the subjects of vessels classification and surveys; and why they are important before finally tackling the many issues surrounding a “seaworthiness” warranty, if it is not worded carefully.

Session 3 - Livestock Carriers and The Importance of Understanding How and Insurance Policy Operates.
2 November 2021, 11.00 a.m. - 12.30 p.m.


Livestock carriers present underwriters with the unusual risk of a cargo that moves. The presenter will discuss about this vessel from the underwriter’s perspective before delving into some of the key technical points in the marine insurance business including the Insurance Act 2015, Broker’s slips, Law and Jurisdiction, Arbitration, the possible extent of liability under a marine hull policy; and the importance of understanding how an insurance policy operates in the eyes of the law.

18 January 2022, 11.00a.m. - 12.30 p.m.

This session is a varied session about the risks associated with Asphalt tankers, power barges and Lift boats.

Session 7 - Offshore Oil & Gas Business.
25 January 2022, 11.00a.m. - 12.30 p.m.

MII Webinar Series

The Best of Both - A Sweet Spot Between New and Traditional Insurance

13 October 2021  
4.00 p.m. (SGT Time) (Timezone Converter)

Strike the balance between new and traditional distribution channels to reach each customer's expectations

To best reach their customers insurers are moving to digital distribution channels. This is meeting the needs of the growing tech savvy customer base and allowing for direct communication, but challenges come where customers require support and advice in complex processes.

Insurers must strike a balance to see the benefits of new digital channels whilst also maximizing on the advantages a traditional agent model can bring.

Are you ready to build a strategy to achieve this balance and understand what works for each product and each customer?

- Be the Front Runner: Develop new and update existing channels to reach a speed to market that beats your competition
- The Importance of Education: Through digital distribution open up direct communication channels with your customer - incorporate the education piece you can’t afford to lose whilst creating room to cross/upsell
- Integrate Agent Distribution to the Digital Transformation: Modernize the route to market but keep the benefits of allowing financial advice for more complex sales processes

The Geneva Association

Health & Ageing Conference 2021
What will it take to ensure a healthy recovery from COVID-19?

Thursday, 2 December 2021, 9.00 a.m. –5.00 p.m. GMT
Friday, 3 December 2021, 9.00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. GMT (Timezone Converter)

The COVID-19 pandemic will have lasting effects on our lives. A series of lockdowns has given us a new lens through which to consider our well-being: physical, mental, financial and – more broadly – societal. This shift coincides with a quiet revolution in the life and health insurance industry. As societies are being redefined by demographic and epidemiological developments as well as advancements in medical technology, traditional insurance operating models are coming under pressure to transform in order to remain relevant. All of this is happening against a backdrop of rising consumer expectations and changing attitudes towards businesses, governments, science and technology. The consequences are far-reaching.

The 2021 Health & Ageing Conference will convene stakeholders across and beyond the industry to understand how COVID-19 has changed our perspective on health and ageing and what is needed to rise to the challenges in the aftermath of COVID-19. We will also discuss the major disruptors in the market that will reshape the life and health insurance industry over the coming years.
