Indemnity insurance bill falls to three-year low

first_imgSolicitors paid less to insurers for professional indemnity insurance (PII) this year than they did in the previous two years, Solicitors Regulation Authority figures revealed today. The cost of insuring the profession on the open market this year was £214m, down from £241m in 2009/10 and £226m in 2008/09. The news comes after some solicitors reported large increases in premiums and exceptionally difficult market conditions for the third renewal period in a row. The SRA figures also show a marked difference in insurers’ participation in the market, in terms of their share of the £214m premium pool. Chartis Insurance, formerly AIG, increased its share of the market, taking slightly more than 18% of premiums this year compared with 15.2% in 2009/10. It was followed as market leader by: Inter Hannover (14.4%, up from 4.5%); XL Insurance (13.3%, up from 7.1%); Zurich (12.9%, up slightly from 12.8%); and Travelers (11%, down from 13.4%). XL and Inter Hannover entered the solicitors PII market in 2009. Before 2008/09, insurance costs fell by up to 10% each year following the abolition of the solicitors’ indemnity fund (SIF). In 2000, the last year of the SIF, the cost of insuring the profession was £255m.last_img read more

Guyanese shooters within striking distance

first_img… Allicock gets disappointing decisionGUYANESE shooters, Ransford Goodluck and Lennox Braithwaite are well within striking distance of a medal finish in the Queen’s Prize Pairs, ahead of today’s final showdown of the event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.The pair ended the first day with a score of 293-29v and to sit in the 11th position behind Guernsey (294-30v), Canada (295-33v), New Zealand (296-34v), Jersey (297-23v), Wales (297-34v), Northern Ireland (298-30v), Scotland (298-31v), Australia (299-35v), South Africa (299-37v) and 2014 gold medallist England.According to reports from Australia, the Guyanese shooters are optimistic of their chances to land on the podium, bettering their 2014 showing at the Commonwealth Games, when Mahendra Persaud and Lennox Braithwaite shot Guyana to a sixth-place finish with a total of 585-47v.BOXINGKeevin Allicock, the 2017 Junior Commonwealth Games silver medallist, suffered a heart-breaking controversial defeat to 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Reece McFadden.Much was expected of Allicock ahead of the games, and the 18-year-old from Albouystown lived up to those expectations, only to have his hopes of reaching the quarter-final of the 52kg class snatched by some obvious dubious judging.Fijian Judge Seru Whippy scored the fight 29-28 for Allicock, giving the Guyanese fighter two of the three rounds, but the other four judges scoring in similar fashion for the Scottish boxer, though he was outpunched.Allicock’s defeat ended Guyana’s campaign in the ring since the other fighter, Colin Lewis (light welterweight) was knocked out of the competition after winning his opening fight.ATHLETICSMeanwhile, over on the track, Winston George ram 47.25 secs in his 400 metres semi-final, but his time was not good enough to see him through to the final. George will now shift his attention to the 200 metres today.Also today, the Hooper sisters, Natrena and Natricia, will go head-to-head when they meet in the women’s triple jump.Troy Doris will have his first taste of the Commonwealth Games in the men’s triple jump and Emanuel Archibald is aiming to rebound from his unsatisfactory performance in the 100 metres event, where he crashed out at the semi-finals.Since Wesley Christmas’ bronze medal in boxing at the 1990 Games in Auckland, New Zealand, Guyana’s only medals came from track and field, compliments of Aliann Pompey.Pompey struck gold in the 400 metres at the 2002 Games in Manchester, England and picked up a silver medal at the 2010 Games in India.Guyana, so far, has a total of 15 medals at the Commonwealth Games, with boxing and track and field sharing the spoils.last_img read more
