    86. SMB insurance - Pricing the unforeseeable

    86. SMB insurance - Pricing the unforeseeable

    Sarah Kocianski and Nigel Walsh are joined by a panel of guests to talk about SMB insurance. SMB insurance is vital to any small business owner in order to protect the business against foreseeable and unforeseeable liabilities, something that has been proven in the last few months. When lockdown happened, many SMBs had to close all together and file for Business Interruption. This lead to a high court case between the SMBs and the insurers and many of the insureres had to pay their customers, but how can you sell cover for something that has never happened before?

Pronouns

I really love this podcast. It’s high quality and interesting.

My only criticism is that I find the guests often use the pronoun ‘he’ to describe pretty much everyone who works in the industry. For example, ‘if we look at a standard CEO HE will do this...’

I know the industry doesn’t have a lot of diversity but I’m sure there are females in the industry to justify changing to ‘they’.

Note, this is only the guests, the presenters are fab!
