Join us for a concise yet in-depth 1-hour webinar, co-organized by the Chartered Institute of Loss Adjusters (CILA) and the Singapore College of Insurance (SCI), as we explore a decade of evolution in Business Interruption (BI) Policy Wordings. This complimentary session delves into the dynamic world of BI insurance, drawing on insights from the pivotal 2012 publication "Business Interruption Policy Wordings: Challenges Highlighted by Claims Experience" by CILA and the Insurance Institute of London, and its subsequent 2019 update.

Discover the origins of the 2012 report, a response to the industry's call for clarity in BI policies, addressing issues like the disparity between policy language and its practical application, confusion over indemnity periods, and ambiguities in standard BI policies.
