This month began with a bang as the annual British Insurance Awards highlighted the talent in the sector in 1950s style, with industry stalwart John O’Roarke being handed the Achievement Award.
See all the winners and the photos from the BIA 2018.
Also this week, Aviva faces claims it ‘ripped off’ its dashcam app idea from a start-up; the Financial Conduct Authority is consulting on proposals to introduce a new directory, a public register for checking the details of key individuals working in financial services; and Lloyd’s and Zurich have founded the Inclusive Behaviours Pledge, which has been signed by 50 firms so far.
In our July issue, director of content Jonathan Swift asks what being more like an insurtech means to incumbents; our interview is with Hiscox CEO Bronek Masojada, who talks about living life in the fast lane and keeping the market diverse; and our rising star is Buzzvault’s Rob Pendray.
In in-depth analysis, Ryan Hewlett looks at mandating electric placement across the London market, Jen Frost deals with the commission debate, which was rekindled after GRP’s split from Aviva, and Rosie Quigley asks if Lemonade is losing its fizz.
Our rountable attendees discuss the future of insurance in the digital age and in our c-suite Aviva’s Maurice Tulloch believes driving distracted should have the same stigma as drink driving while CNA Hardy’s Dave Brosnan says it is time brokers beat the bunker mentality.
Finally, Post editorial team are beginning the month with a charity run through the mud this Sunday, there is still time to sponsor us or just wait for the pictures!

With great sadness we confirm that Sir David Rowland, our former Chairman from 1993 to 1997, has passed away. He played a critical role in safeguarding the future of the Lloyd’s market through perhaps its most difficult period.— Lloyd's (@LloydsofLondon) February 18, 2019
