The Impacts of Climate Change on Insurance costs

Climate Insights

Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

Mask wearing

Rae from Chartwell

This one goes out to the not inconsiderable number of people in places where masks are required, wearing them incorrectly, ie not covering their noses.
Please note, pretty much everyone does not particularly like having to wear a mask, but we do it, and we definitely have a good deal of sympathy for those serving us who have to keep them on for their entire shift whereas we are probably in their place of business less than half an hour.
At the very, very least would you please show a bit of respect for those behind the counter and wear your mask correctly.
Don't think because no-one pulls you up, that no-one wants to, I know I have to bite my tongue.
