This week we held the second of our Insurance Round Table events for 2019 in Auckland and Wellington. These sessions focussed on the recent shift towards more risk-based pricing for property insurance in New Zealand, the factors driving this change and the possibility of government intervention.

In this edition of Cover to Cover, we consider these issues in greater detail. We also discuss a number of recent developments in insurance law and regulation, and summarise the key points which New Zealand insurers should take away from the Australian Law Reform Commission’s Final Report.  

We finish up with some updates on recent insurance law cases, and comment on the potential insurance implications of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
