Latest Developments in the Cargo Market

25 June 2015

Welcome to the first issue of Cargo Delivers, our new regular newsletter rounding up the latest news and trends in the cargo insurance industry.

For our main feature, we invited senior cargo underwriters from Aegis and Ascot to join Nick Peck and Daryl Mackay from our Cargo team to discuss the latest developments in the cargo market.

In this issue we cover:

  • Claim Preparation Cover and why clients might want them written into their cargo policies
  • The importance of the recent RIMS conference - to us and our clients
  • The rise in expropriation claims, and how companies can help protect themselves
  • How companies can prepare for the new Insurance Contract Act, which is coming into effect in August 2016
  • Protecting Project Cargo

Exclusions for cyber risks - and in particular the Institute Cyber Attack Exclusion Clause CL380 - have become a hot topic in the industry once again. I am on a panel debating the key issues at the International Cargo Insurance Conference this week.
