Mr Keese will speak about the changes within the Lloyd’s community, their response to Covid-19, the moves within the market to modernise, and Lloyd’s blueprint.
Covid-19 mock trial
A friendly and lively mock trial, where volunteers will take on the roles (for argument only) of both a cedant and a reinsurer, so we can hear how both sides of a reinsurance contract might argue their positions. Does Covid-19 constitute a natural peril, or one or more events?
