On the penultimate day of the IMO's Maritime Safety Committee, Jun Lin, Chair of IUMI's Facts & Figures Committee and Head of Portfolio and Business Development at Gard, presented the latest statistics on marine insurance premiums as well as casualty trends. While the incidents generally show a downwards development, i.e. fewer casualties, a worrying trend continues to be fires. This is particularly true for containerships.
In the Q&A that followed Jun's presentations, questions about cyber risks, causation of severe weather as well as in relation to containership fires and losses of containers overboard were addressed.
