Worldwide, there has been a huge escalation in insurance claims and a corresponding increase in significant insurance litigation.
Contributing to this have been epidemics, climate change (with a consequent increase in storms, droughts, floods and other ‘weather events’), earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Financial issues and uncertainty continue to plague economies, bringing insecurity and ambiguity to countries. Cyber-attacks have also increased the vulnerability of nations, institutions and business entities.
