Successful Business Interruption Seminar in Dubai

Whitelaw Advanta and Advanta Global Services hosted a seminar for industry leaders in Dubai which brought together senior professionals from across the insurance and reinsurance markets in a key global industry hub.

51 Luminaries from the UAE insurance industry, representing 30 companies from as far afield as Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Abu Dhabi were welcomed at the Conrad Hotel in Dubai for an opportunity to network and discuss some of the key topics facing the market today. 

George Viar, Managing Director at Advanta Global, together with Sam Toumbev, also from Advanta, discussed current trends and case studies on the topics of business interruption and the roll of the Loss Adjuster. Gareth Sampson, Country Manager at Whitelaw Advanta, explored Business Interruption from an alternative angle.

“Our experience with multiple cases in diverse jurisdictions has offered an insight into how business interruption translates differently across each industry sector, providing valuable guidance for proficient BI claims management. By understanding the key criteria defining Business Interruption for different sectors supported by the correct tools and processes, loss adjusters and forensic accountants can effectively evaluate complex international BI losses’, George Viar emphasised to the attentive audience. 

The seminar concluded with a valuable Q&A panel, allowing participants to dig deeper into specific key issues affecting business today.
