NEDs and Chairs Network breakfast - Fair Pricing in Insurance

When:

Where: Association of British Insurers - UK Head Office - London, One America Square, 17 Crosswall, London, EC3N 2LB

Registration: 08:15

Pricing practices, their oversight and the outcomes they produce for customers, have been the subject of intense scrutiny from regulators, stakeholders, customers and the media. Some recent developments include the super-complaint brought before the CMA, the FCA’s findings in their recent Thematic Review into household insurance and the FCA’s ongoing Market Study into GI Pricing Practices into retail home and motor insurance. More fundamentally, the FCA has crystallised some of the challenges it perceives regarding the fairness of pricing practices and launched a focussed dialogue with stakeholders, through its publication of the Discussion Paper on Fair Pricing in Financial Services.

Join us at this breakfast event to hear from the FCA's Christopher Woolard on the regulator’s take on this and to provide your perspective.
