Research Team: What are some things I should be looking out for when underwriting a general liability policy for a small furniture manufacturer?
ChatGPT: Here are some key points to consider when underwriting a general liability policy for a small furniture manufacturer:
- Risks associated with the manufacturing process, including materials, safety measures, and hazards
- Type of furniture produced and potential for damage or injury to customers
- Past claims history and financial stability of the company
- Location and potential for natural disasters or other events that could impact the business
- Potential for product recalls, liability for faulty or defective products, and legal action
- Potential for damage or loss to company property, such as machinery or raw materials
- Risk of workplace accidents or illnesses to employees
- Impact of emerging technologies, changing regulations, and other external factors on the business.
What: The increasing number of denials in cyber coverage claims is a leading indicator of trouble for cyber coverage. There’s a widening understanding gap between insurers and policyholders who may not fully understand the nuances of this relatively new and rapidly evolving product. In a landscape with a growing quantity of attacks, this understanding gap represents a significant risk for both insurers and policyholders.
Why it matters: One of the major challenges with cyber coverage is understanding the specifics of a company and fitting coverage to that company. As it stands now, most cyber coverages are somewhat of a catch coverage, with the included exclusions resulting in likely unexpected exposures for some policyholders.
