Is it a tool? Is it a reference point? It’s both, claims Airmic technical director Paul Hopkin talking to Insurance Times.

It, as it turns out, is the latest publication from the Association of Insurance and Risk Managers (or Mangers if one takes Insurance Times at face value). Airmic claims its best practice guide for claims handling is both a tool for insurance buyers and a reference point for insurers. “A claim is like a beautiful woman,” Paul Hopkins should really have continued. Instead he wanted to talk about questions and pointing. The guide, he said, “points to the awkward questions that buyers should ask and the kind of responses and evidence that they have a right to receive.”

Leading insurers are apparently eager for reference. ACE, AIG, AXA, RSA and the sprawlingly named Zurich have all apparently agreed to report back to Airmic on how they measure up.

What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
