At the UK Club we have adapted to the changing needs of our Members and the Maritime industry over the past few months. We have supported the training needs of our Members with a series of live webinars covering various Loss Prevention issues. The third webinar in the series - held on 04 June 2020 - explored the subject of P&I Clubs and Claims, and included a generous allocation of time for questions. A recording of the webinar is available at the bottom of the page.
As our webinar series progressed over the past few months, we have always encouraged feedback, questions and interaction from viewers. We noticed that many of the questions we received regarded the functioning of P&I Clubs, how claims were dealt with and how the various marine insurances such as P&I and H&M interacted with one another. We hosted this live webinar to address such queries.
The panellists for the webinar are Jeff Lock, Global Claims Director, UK Club and Aki Tsukui, Director of Claims, UK Club. The Webinar was moderated by Capt Anuj Velankar, Senior Loss Prevention Advisor, UK Club.
Aki shared a short PowerPoint presentation highlighting the history of the P&I Clubs, how their role has developed over the years, a brief overview of the International Group and reinsurance, finishing with a brief look at the various claims that are covered. Following this, the rest of the hour-long webinar was dedicated to a Q&A session with Jeff and Aki.
With over 1,300 registered delegates and almost 1,000 attendees on the day, it was clear that this was a relevant topic for many people. We would like to thank all those in attendance and hope to see you at our next live webinar - 'Catastrophic machinery failures: Joining the Dots' on Thursday 2nd July 2020.
