Event 28: Insurance challenges you can expect in 2023.

This webinar took place on Thursday 8 December 2022.

Insurance challenges you can expect in 2023.


For our last webinar in 2022, we discussed current trends and challenges faced by the insurance industry post-COVID.

Market analysts are predicting that insurance premiums will rise considerably in 2023 and that major losses in the sectional title industry will lead to underwriting guidelines being tightened. It is becoming increasingly common for special policy conditions and insurance cover exclusions to be applied to higher risk buildings.

What insurance challenges should you expect in 2023? We asked the experts in the field for advice on how to deal with these challenges.

Our expert guests for this webinar were Sharne Van Schoor from CIA Building Insurance Specialists and Mike Addison from Addsure. From water ingress to subsidence claims, we reviewed issues that have been on the radar in 2022 and attempt to forecast what scenarios are likely to feature 2023.
