Strong Brands the Likely Winners of UK Insurance Pricing Review

Strong Brands the Likely Winners of UK Insurance Pricing Review

UK personal lines insurers will need to adjust their pricing models in response to the Financial Conduct Authority’s proposed remedies surrounding the pricing of policies for renewing customers, according to a new AM Best commentary.

The Best’s Commentary, “Strong Brands the Likely Winners of UK Insurance Pricing Review,” states that as insurers will need to increase the prices applied to new business to offset the impact of lower renewal premium on earnings, other aspects of their business profile will likely play an increasing role in the decision-making process of potential and established customers.

This suggests that brands currently enjoying high levels of recognition and customer satisfaction will be best positioned to take advantage as policyholders begin to take more notice of a company’s customer service levels, the experiences of other policyholders (expressed via online channels), and metrics such as claims approval ratios.

Creative Arts Emmys 2020 Night 5 (Full List of Winners)

Creative Arts Emmys 2020 Night 5 (Full List of Winners)

This year’s fifth and final night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies aired Saturday night “virtually live” on FXX, and viewers discovered that first hand, when a snafu happened late in the broadcast during the award for guest actor in a drama.

When the winner was revealed, the screen read Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) — but the voice over announced Jason Bateman, from “The Outsider.” Producers quickly realized their mistake, and pulled the visual down, going to commercial. When the show returned, an on-screen note offered an apology:

Lazy loaded image

It turns out Cephas Jones was indeed the winner, although if he had sent in an acceptance speech, it wasn’t played.

And so goes Emmy 2020, a most unusual year that has led to a most unusual setup for this year’s Emmy Awards. A virtual Emmys was bound to have some hiccups, and this could perhaps be a foreshadowing of Sunday night’s main Emmy Awards, as producers have promised to expect the unexpected — including a few gaffes along the way. Live TV!

The FXX telecast was the finale of the 100 Creative Arts awards passed out over five days this year. (Normally, the Creative Arts Emmys are presented over two nights the weekend before the primetime ceremony.) Like the four shows streamed earlier this week, segments for the show were pre-taped, but the show was produced in real time, as reps from Ernst & Young revealed winners to the show’s control room over the next two hours — hence, perhaps the accidental button pushing.

Among the night’s other winners: “RuPaul’s Drag Race’s” RuPaul Charles broke the record for most consecutive hosting wins, landing his fifth consecutive Emmy for reality or competition program host. Eddie Murphy, meanwhile, won his first-ever Emmy, for hosting “Saturday Night Live” — which landed
