Monte Carlo Annual Dinner - Monday 11 September 2017

"Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life’s most civilized pleasures" is variously attributed, but they must have had in mind restaurant Quai Des Artistes in Monte Carlo! It was there on Monday 11th September that the AirSP Annual Rendezvous Dinner took place. A fabulous evening was had by members and guests as the wine flowed with magnificent food. Our largest number to date – 34 – met for a few sharpeners beforehand and then sat at the longest table your correspondent has seen! Shop talk of the Rendezvous, insurance and reinsurance and the effects of the hurricane season no doubt gradually gave way to the weather we were enjoying – soon to be replaced by the cold and wet back in Blighty; your correspondent also suspects the conversation became even more "relaxed" as the good humour spread.

The organising of such a number was triumphantly managed by our own Secretary, Tracy Bailey, and the restaurant staff were up to the task of corralling us all to choose from a beautiful menu selection. Part way through our feast, Chairman Bill managed a welcome speech and the testimony to the generous mood amongst the table was that he spoke not just in English, but French too!

So, to break bread - with wine – in the company of colleagues and friends, in such surroundings certainly makes for a memorable time and surely a pointer to how rewarding can be the generating of doing business together. Cheers to AirSP.

Salut mes Braves!

Members' Drinks - 9 August 2017

August is the season for holiday and relaxation. Not so for the Board of AirSP which met for a lot of serious business on 9 August at The Broker’s. But even they followed it with drinks with members (in the same place) at one of AirSP’s two annual drinks parties for members (wait for our next in December at The Lloyd’s Club). People lingered for some time over good food (and lots of it), pleasant drink and always enjoyable company.

Insurance Fraud Forensics - 18 July 2017

We were very fortunate to have Guillermo Lopez and colleagues from Rimkus Consulting for our July meeting. Guillermo has a range of experience in the insurance and engineering cycle from cradle to grave and gave a keenly interested audience a fascinating discussion about the claims process and how (Re) Insurers and other Experts can guard and protect themselves from fraudulent claims as well as claims which might be genuine in themselves but have circumstances that can give rise to argument over coverage or quantum.

Guillermo illustrated his presentation with some great video and other media, which gave us all a strong insight on the activities of Rimkus and other consulting Experts. They give the Market a remarkable service in claims management and adjustment, as well as being a valuable resource for loss control and pre-risk analysis.

The meeting concluded with an opportunity for Members to meet with Guillermo and his colleagues as well as other AIRSP Members and guests over a very convivial drinks session after his presentation. A great evening and enjoyed by all!
