The latest issue of Post is now available to subscribers as a digital and interactive e-book.
In this week's Post, senior reporter Amy Ellis finds corporate insurance buyers confident that their carriers will withstand any fallout from a Greek exit from the euro and continued Eurozone volatility - but there are concerns surrounding severe claims that could arise.
Following CEO Richard Ward's public assurances at the weekend that Lloyd's has strong contingency plans in place, other insurers have spoken out about their own scenario planning.
In other news, Post reporter Callum Brodie investigates whether Towergate's decision to walk away from a deal for Cobra is symptomatic of wider questions over the current appeal of owning networks.
Opinions appear divided, some suggesting that now is a particularly tricky time to buy a network and others adamant that Towergate's decision has no bearing on network appeal and is merely reflective of CEO Mark Hodges' selectivity of acquisitions.
Elsewhere, Post reporter Chinwe Akomah details the investment loss adjusters are continuing to make in talent programmes and technical expertise, despite the need to create leaner business models in the wake of reduced claim volumes and insurer insourcing, which have recently necessitated headcount reductions.
Feature articles not to be missed this week include expert commentary on the relevance of traditional terrorism and political risk covers, as violence and civil unrest grips countries around the globe, prompting Aon to downgrade 37 countries in its latest risk index; and an in-depth look at whether the Jackson reforms will finally boost take-up of alternative dispute resolution in personal injury claims.
