This seminar will examine the intersection between several leading parts of today’s sharing economy and their spiritual ancestor: insurance. Insurance needs arise in the context of the legal and financial risks that upstart business models such as Airbnb and Uber run. The panel of underwriters and lawyers will cover legal and insurance issues arising out of the peer-to-peer economy.

Seminar Objectives

  • Define what is the new economy
  • Explore home and office sharing
  • Examine transport sharing
  • Review other emerging shared economy ventures
  • Identify non-insurance regulatory pitfalls and hurdles
  • Discuss Underwriting considerations for shared economy risks
