Marine Cargo Insurance Underwriting and Claims

Marine Cargo Insurance Underwriting and Claims


In a Global economy, moving goods around the world can be a risky business. Organizations and individuals need to protect their cargo in order to remain in business. A directive by the Kenyan Government compelling local importers to obtain insurance locally in compliance with section 20 of the Insurance Act, has presented a unique opportunity for insurance industry players. Kenyan businesses that have been importing goods were rarely thinking about purchasing marine cargo insurance policies locally. It is anticipated that this class of insurance business will grow as the directive and implementation of the law takes effect. Many underwriters are now designing products and putting them on offer to potential and existing customers. The Association of Insurers (AKI) annual report for the year ending 2017, indicates that the Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased from KES 2.6 billion in 2016 to KES 3.7 billion in 2017. Underwriting profit improved by 20.5% over the same period. An opportunity to get certification through attending this seminar has been made possible by the College of Insurance.
