The Insurance Act 2015

RRP $302.99

The Insurance Act 2015 represents the first major reform of English commercial insurance law for many years. Its impact will be felt not only in England, where it will greatly affect both maritime and commercial insurance practice, but also elsewhere where English law is the law of choice in insurance contracts.

Timed to coincide with the coming into force of the Act, The Insurance Act 2015: A New Regime for Commercial and Marine Insurance Law analyses in depth the key aspects of the Act and extensively restates and modifies a number of legal principles applying both at common law and under the Marine Insurance Act 1906. Offering much more than the usual commentary on legislation, this book provides critical in-depth analysis of the important topics as was all coverage of areas likely to spawn disputes in future.

Written by leading practitioners and academics in the field, this book offers comprehensive, coherent and practical legal analysis of the changes introduced by the Insurance Act 2015. The Insurance Act 2015: A New Regime for Commercial and Marine Insurance Law will be of interest to practitioners, insurance professionals and academics


Reinsurance Regulation

RRP $662.99

We seem to be living at a time when insurance is strained to the breaking point. From hurricanes and earthquakes to terrorist attacks and threats of nuclear devastation, enormous risks to life and property; and accompanying liabilities; proliferate on an unprecedented scale. Insurer insolvency is not yet common, but it is not unusual either. And at the root of such failures often lies the compound failure of uncollectable reinsurance. This important book proposes that a significant part of the emerging insurance crisis results from inadequate regulation of reinsurance.

In a detailed and cogent analysis of what an effective regulatory regime for reinsurance must entail, the author examines such factors as the following:

  • direct supervision of reinsurers versus supervision of reinsurance policies
  • models from developed countries (US, UK, EU) and international organisations (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, International Association of Insurance Supervisors)
  • the importance of taking legal and economic differences into account while applying models
  • the problem of local protectionism, especially in developing countries
  • the dismantling of trade barriers in the reinsurance industry
  • global harmonization of reinsurance regulation
  • the role of reinsurance intermediaries
  • finite risk reinsurance
  • insurance-linked securities.

    The author's concluding chapter presents an essential legal infrastructure that allows for efficiency, security, and individual market characteristics. Professor Wang then applies this framework to the Taiwanese insurance market, demonstrating convincingly how his proposed regime can solve specific problems while respecting Taiwan's distinct market environment. As a meticulously considered appraisal of, and solution to, a world problem that is growing quickly and uncontrollably, Reinsurance Regulation will be of immense value to lawyers, professors, academics, and officials who deal with any facet of economic law.
