Property insurance underpins the resilience of millions of household and businesses across the UK, paying out almost £13 million per day to customers when the worst occurs. However, the built environment and the way we use it are changing, as are the associated risks. It is vital that the industry understands current and future risks relating to fire safety, climate change and the changing pace of construction, and manage and adapt to this shifting landscape. 

With Government committing to building over 300,000 homes a year by mid-2020s, completing an in-depth review of building regulations and encouraging innovation through modern methods of construction, it is integral that the UK property insurance market articulates what good looks like. Similarly, the way consumers behave and engage with insurance is changing, driven by digitisation and consumer demands and needs. With an evolving regulatory landscape, fast-paced technological change and innovation, insurers must continue to adapt to meet customers’ demands.

The ABI’s 2019 property conference will bring together senior representatives from insurers, government, the construction industry and the wider property industry. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges facing the property owners and builders, the role of insurance and innovative construction, and the increasing hazards facing today’s buildings.  How new initiatives and technologies will enable the sector to evolve and improve levels of resilience, and what this will all mean for UK property insurers in the future.
