Business interruption insurance


The lockdown caused by COVID-19 has spotlighted business interruption insurance especially since on 26 June 2020, when the Western Cape Division of the High Court in Cape Town delivered its judgment relating to a business interruption claim due to the pandemic.

The judgment could have far-reaching implications on non-life insurers who provide cover for business interruption. The complexity of determining coverage hinges on the wording issued to a policyholder. Each policy wording needs to be read in its entirety to determine the liability of an insurer. Is COVID-19 a valid disruptor? What do insurers look for in a valid claim and how are these claims calculated?

Join us for a high-level two-hour webinar on business interruption insurance from an insurer’s perspective.
