Business Interruption Insurance Claims: Update

Banking & Finance Litigation

On 22 January 2021, the FCA published its ‘Dear CEO’ letter to insurers following the recent decision in the Supreme Court Test Case. That letter set out the FCA’s intention to send an information request to insurers for updated details of all non-damage business interruptions policies that are capable of responding to the Covid-19 pandemic following the Court judgments.

This has been completed and the FCA has now published a list of insurers and policies as submitted by insurers which are, in principle, capable of responding to Covid-19. The policies listed cover over 200,000 policyholders.
