Our most recent podcasts have been extremely topical. In March, IUMI Secretary General Lars Lange discussed the impact of the war in Ukraine and International sanctions on global shipping and marine insurance, examining the situation for war risk insurers, the challenges faced by underwriters of Russian related risks and how IUMI is supporting its members through the crisis.
In April, Dave Matcham, Chief Executive of the International Underwriting Association and Secretary of the IUMI Facts & Figures Committee, discussed the latest progress on IUMI's Major Claims Database. Originally established as a pilot project four years ago to create a large and consistent loss database for hull and cargo with standardised data from member companies, he discussed the type of data being published now and IUMI's ambitions for the database in the future.
Last but not least, earlier this month, Lars Lange IUMI Secretary General explained the work being undertaken by the International Quality Assessment Review Body (IQARB). As Chair of IQUARB, Lars was able to explain the background, the role of IMO and flag states in relation to the organisation, its benefits to IUMI, and what the future of the programme holds.
