From industry debates to the House of Commons, it's been a week of tackling hot topics


I’m out for much of the day chairing Insurance Times’s latest Claims Clinic lunch, where the highlight is a heated debate between senior industry figures about insurance fraud.


Across to Canary Wharf and the Financial Ombudsman Service to interview chief executive Natalie Ceeney – not a woman to be messed with!


The highlight on is our analysis of Gallagher’s swoop on Towergate and its adoption of London market-style poaching in the regional market (see left).


After an early morning meeting to get the lowdown from Biba on work in hand, it’s back to the office, where the big news is the jump in NIG’s losses.


I round off the week with a trip to the House of Commons to watch the FSA being grilled over problems bedevilling the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
