    Aviva sees 160 million pounds in COVID-19 claims, weaker second quarter

    British insurer Aviva expects 160 million pounds in claims related to the coronavirus pandemic and weaker second quarter sales, it said on Thursday, as government lockdowns aimed at containing the virus hit the global economy. "We've had a pretty good first quarter," Aviva Chief Financial Officer Jason Windsor told Reuters. Aviva, which has operations in Asia, mainland Europe and Canada as well as Britain, said new life insurance sales rose by 28% to 12.3 billion pounds in the first quarter, helped by a strong performance in bulk annuities, which involve taking on the risk of company defined benefit pension schemes.

    Lloyd's, Hiscox among donors to 100 mln stg COVID-19 insurance fund-trade body

    Lloyd's of London, Hiscox and RSA are among donors to a new British 100 million pound ($121.19 million) insurance and long-term savings COVID-19 support fund, the Association of British Insurers (ABI) said on Monday. The fund is being set up as insurers like Hiscox are under attack from small businesses who say their claims for disruption due to the virus have been declined, prompting the Financial Conduct Authority to go to the courts for a decision on the issue. The fund has already received 82.5 million pounds in pledges, the ABI said in a statement, with 20 million pounds of the money pledged so far going to The National Emergencies Trust to support charities tackling the effects of the virus.

    UK watchdog goes to court to clarify coronavirus business insurance

    Britain's financial watchdog said it would urgently ask the courts to clarify uncertainty over the inability of some insurance customers to obtain compensation for disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Financial Conduct Authority said it was seeking a declaration from the court due to continuing concerns about the lack of clarity and certainty for some customers making business interruption claims, and the basis on which some firms are making decisions in relation to claims. The FCA also set out measures to support consumers and businesses who hold insurance products and who are facing other issues as a result of coronavirus.
