Do you want to better protect your clients from underinsurance?

06 August 2021

Underinsurance remains a key issue. Valuations can be expensive and clients often resist them because they fear sums insured and premiums will increase but the application of the average clause can be worse.

As of July 2021, Ecclesiastical annually values around £46bn worth of property including some of the most architecturally beautiful and complex risks in the UK.
Watch our video from specialist risk experts David Parkinson, Technical Services Manager and Claire Attenborough, Principal Risk Management Surveyor. David and Claire talk you through what to look out for so you can help your client make sure that average isn’t applied.
