      Global insurance market is well capitalized in the face of COVID-19 - report

      Global insurers are well capitalized to absorb the hit from rising claims and costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ratings agency AM Best said on Monday, citing a stress test it conducted to gauge the immediate impact of outbreak on insurers' financial strength. AM Best said most rated insurers and reinsurers performed well in its stress test and their capital levels provided an adequate buffer against a potential shock to their balance sheets. Sensitivity to the COVID-19 pandemic was greater for life and health insurers with high asset and mortality risks, insurers with material exposures to mortgage loans, carriers operating in domiciles in higher country-risk tiers and companies with smaller capital bases.

      Hiscox faces legal action as companies pursue pandemic payouts

      The Hiscox Action Group has been given the go-ahead from lawyers and funders to start legal action against insurer Hiscox, in an effort to secure £40m of payouts for companies under business interruption policies to cover the costs of the lockdown. The action, to be launched in the next few days by law firm Mishcon de Reya, is to be financed by litigation funder Harbour. The Hiscox Action Group, which has more than 400 members, is one of almost a dozen pressure groups that have been launched since the coronavirus crisis started.

      Big insurers face fresh coronavirus claim threat from UK hospitality sector

      Top insurers such as AXA <AXAF.PA>, RSA <RSA.L>, QBE <QBE.AX> and Zurich <ZURN.S> face a potential multi-million pound lawsuit from British pubs, hotels, restaurants and leisure groups, who allege that legitimate business interruption claims have been rejected. A new Hospitality Insurance Action Group (HIGA) on Wednesday issued a "call to arms" to the sector to step forward and have their policies checked for free in the latest move to tackle insurers over their response to the coronavirus pandemic. Lawyers at Mishcon de Reya -- who are already advising a separate action group against Hiscox <HSX.L>, a leading insurer of small and medium sized businesses -- said the hospitality sector had been particularly hard hit by the lockdown.

      Fire and hail push insurers to rethink climate change risks

      By the time David Kaisel got back from selling his flour at a farmers' market, a wildfire in California's Capay Valley had burned both his tractor and the shipping container where he kept some tools. Kaisel is the kind of customer making insurers rethink their approach to climate change so they can sell policies without incurring too much risk. "I’m already accustomed to drought, but in the past year I learned first-hand the consequences of both record rainfall and wildfire," Kaisel said.
