Flood scheme’s interim chief to participate in Aqua-hosted webinar next week

Interim Flood Re chief executive Tom Woolgrove will answer brokers’ questions directly for the first time next week in a webinar hosted by RK Harrison-owned underwriting agency Aqua.

Brokers can register here for the webinar, which will take place on Wednesday 16 July at 3pm.

Aqua chose the topic after asking brokers what they would like to see covered in future events. Flood Re was the most requested topic.

There is still much confusion and uncertainty in the market about Flood Re, which will replace the Statement of Principles in summer 2015. Debates are still raging about whether certain excluded groups, such as properties in council tax band H and small businesses, should be included in the scheme.

Flood Re is expected to announce a permanent chief executive within days.
