Insurance industry increasingly impacting as Covid-19 takes greater toll on economy

The last few days were significant for the insurance industry, not only because it supported the federal government in the fight against Covid-19 like many other sectors did, but because its contribution was directly on frontline health workers who have through their role sacrificed their lives for the rest of us.

The contribution was the provision of free life insurance cover for 5000 frontline health workers on Covid-19, which will ensure that in the event of any death their families or dependants will be compensated.

Sub for 500

This significant geniture was not taken for granted by the Federal Government, as President Mohammadu Buhari in his second national broadcast on Federal Government response on Covid-19 acknowledged and appreciated the support of the insurance industry in this fight, as significant.

President Buhari said “In keeping with our Government’s promise to improve the welfare of healthcare workers, we have signed a memorandum of understanding on

Degree of Future COVID-19 Revenue Impact Is ‘Simply Unknowable’

Chubb Chairman and CEO Evan Greenberg insists the global P/C insurer has strong fundamentals, but warned at the same time that the ongoing pandemic crisis will spur unpredictable revenue challenges affecting many lines of coverage.

Broadly speaking, the insurer will likely take hits on the liability side and earnings via at least a temporary reduction in premium revenues, Greenberg explained during an April 22 investor call held to discuss Chubb’s Q1 2020 earnings.

“Our growth momentum, particularly in our commercial [property/casualty] business globally, continued into April, and we continue to experience improved rate to exposure,” Greenberg said. “As we go forward, offsetting that, will be a meaningful impact to growth from the health and economic crisis as exposures in important areas shrink for a time, with the impact varying by country,” Greenberg said.

Here’s the good news: 

If you have an active life insurance policy and you were to die of a pandemic illness such as COVID-19, your family would receive the death benefit — even if you had traveled to an area with a known outbreak of the coronavirus.
