Each individual policy will surely carry a financial limit or cap on u/ws` exposure to otherwise legitimate claims. The real threat is coming from the misguided attempts by politicians to pressurise the insurance markets into paying claims irrespective of coverage wording [ie] ex gratie settlements at the expense of us shareholders. But why should we pay? This must be resisted at all costs.

To be fair I never said I was an expert or long term investor in this stock. Just think the markets are going to tank big time.

Inspired move? Cashed out on a 10% profit? Jeez. All the big boy chat on this forum over the last two days from various people - Really shown everyone’s true motives & colours.

I cashed out at £7.80. Don’t like these markets as a lot worst to come imho.

Interesting conversation - I know this is a Hiscox board but can anyone tell me why aviva shares look so cheap?

Doubtful waiken. The core products people have bought are there for ‘normal’ claims like fire/theft/flood and never were meant for ‘new’ pandemic risks. PPI was borderline fraud as it never really covered any true risks

Ssems like this has the potential to be the next ppi of insurance by the looks of it.

Generally, I would expect business interruption not to cover pandemic risk as this is not what they are buying, given that this is a specialist risk. The Hiscox wording looks like they are going to take a bit of a hiding on this, probably unlike most other insurers with more sensible wording. A lay person reading that policy would come to the logical conclusion that they are covered. They could well lose this one in my view, but I am no expert! That would be a shame as Hiscox are a normally such a good insurer.

Yes, have to agree that the Hiscox wording looks much more problematic than many others. Whether or not the claimant has notified the local authority specifically on their premises in a timely manner may be open to challenge though.

there is also the ‘public authority clause’ which doesn’t help them much either.

Does every policy say that? Or just the one the Rns mentioned this afternoon.

Interesting responses from HSX today 1. Insurers don't have enough money to pay the claims 2. "That isn't what we meant" It looks pretty obvious to me that HSX has written policies that provide business continuity cover to policy holders and they will lose any attempts to deny payment. I don't think I would keep holding these shares Edit.... to some extent I guess it will depend on that rI they are carrying

Very interesting discussion here, thanks for the contributions. Have to say might have been tempted to buy a few yesterday if I had not read some of the views posted. Well above my pay grade ).

Regrettably though and for my sins I’ve been an insurance broker since 1991. I am currently having to manage and oversee our teams dealing with this crisis and its not pretty . You feel for the businesses that have no cover and at irate at those who could have protection under wordings but are having claims declined under very ambiguous arguments. Still... some will hit FOS and I’ll re look here then and be right or wrong I guess
