Ensuring the unsinkable doesn’t become the unthinkable

08/06/2021 | Online - Zoom Conferencing

When the Titanic sank on 15th April 1912 it became the deadliest peacetime sinking of a cruise ship, claiming 1,514 lives.  Thankfully today we are much better at identifying and mitigating against the risks that could lead to such a catastrophe.

But, as we all know, not every risk is quite so easily identified. In this session Richard Done and Gareth Wynne-Morgan will present the credentials of the European market leader in property damage restoration, Polygon.  They will present an overview of the cost of property damage and how this affects MGAs. They will then discuss the importance of having a direct relationship with Polygon, whether you handle claims directly, delegate authority to a TPA or you rely on your capacity provider to manage claims.

Referencing the experience of the sinking of the Titanic, they will explain why Polygon is the go-to global expert in the mitigation and management of property related perils such as flood, fire and EoW. Using case studies, they will then showcase how Polygon’s expertise and transformative technologies protect policyholder assets, minimise BI and reduce the volume and value of claims, to enable MGAs to realise significant and sustainable increases in revenue.

Learning Objectives
Delegates attending the session will be able to:

  1. Better understand the opportunities MGAs have in identifying property related risks, to underwrite those policies more accurately.
  2. Gain clarity about the interventions MGAs can make to ensure claims are managed efficiently and cost effectively.
  3. Understand the benefits of partnering with a single source damage management company to mitigate risk, reduce claims volumes and protect MGA revenues.
  4. Understand how to add further value to clients and develop new revenue streams.
