Te recent news round-ups have seen insurance in the news in ways we aren't used to, and would generally rather it wasn't seen, or in ways which look like they are going to be darned tricky to work with in the future. The round-up is based on calls, emails and txts, over the last couple of days from people who help me out by contributing / arguing / and questioning this stuff. The list is therefore:
- Code working group (CWG) proposals for competence standards for most insurance planning services
- The FMA's report on replacement business, and the comments on the same by various journalists and commentators
- The use of private investigators by insurers
All have been getting plenty of work and are current subjects on which I have been preparing advice for clients. Do drop me a line if you want to explore these in detail.
