September 19th: "Key Differences between Swiss and English Insurance Law"

The presentation will feature a short welcome address by the AIDA Swiss Chapter to BILA. It further includes a short synthesis of the Swiss insurance regulatory system and the current issues in Switzerland. The latter also include matters relating to the equivalence of the Swiss insurance supervisory law with the principles of Solvency II.
 
In a second part aspects of Swiss insurance contract law will be discussed. Many insurers in the London Market write business in Switzerland by using their standard wordings. English law driven clauses will then have to be embedded into the provisions of the Swiss Insurance Contract Act. The lecture will cover some of the stumbling blocks that usually appear in those cases, including
 

  • issues of subrogation
  • pre-contract disclosure and misrepresentation
  • warranties, conditions precedent and the like
