Watching Brief – High Value Watches in the Insurance Marketplace
A timely look behind the dial of the High Net Worth watch collector’s world, and why there is growing demand for a product which bucks the trends of the digital era. Where popular watch makes and models are routinely in short supply, what are the pieces in the spotlight and how does their popularity have an impact on underwriting and claims decisions?

Via the stars of the silver screen, we will briefly consider the history of the watch from functional tool, to becoming an item of investment, and delegates can expect to take part in this examination with the speaker. This session will explore the difficulties which are often associated with providing a satisfactory claim outcome when an item which is increasingly considered a commodity goes missing or is stolen.

Learning Outcomes: Consumer trends, high net worth policies, validation, claim settlement

AI and Detecting Fraud: Does it Really Bring Value or Should you Stick to Using your "Nose for Fraud"
Its now difficult to escape reference to Artificial Intelligence (AI). From the origins of AI research in 1956, to the now commonplace use of AI for wide ranging applications, its part and parcel of our lives.

So, what about the constant and expensive thorn in the side of the insurer: Fraud? It costs insurers money to prevent, detect, investigate and defend fraud and they expect loss adjusters to be their eyes and ears in protecting them from the impact of fraudulent claims. Given the challenges of successfully identifying fraudulent claims, can AI bring value to loss adjusting firms, or should they stick to using their tried and tested "nose for fraud"?

Learning Outcomes: New technology, Fraud detection

What does the future hold for Agriculture?
Agriculture feeds the world but with the global population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, how is the industry evolving to meet demand and what might the impact be on insurance products and claims in the future?

In this session you will learn about the technology that is supporting new farming models such as vertical, super and urban farming and the enterprising ways by which farmers are now diversifying their businesses. We will also discuss the challenges and opportunities for UK agriculture including Brexit, climate change, alternative feed sources and veganism.

Hear from agricultural loss adjusters who are keeping pace with the changing risks associated with this essential industry and the claims of tomorrow.

What is “damage”?
Damage, and the measure of that, are often (mistakenly) assumed to be straight forward and not requiring discussion. The session will consider:

  • Legal definition of damage

  • Any commercial concession to that, including impairment of use, and assumed damage
