£100,000 rescue for IRM
Insurers and brokers have bailed out the Institute of Risk Management (IRM) with a £100,000 worth of sponsorship for its education programme.

IRM chairman Mark Butterworth announced the sponsorship on Monday as part of the solution to the institute's financial problems.

Royal & SunAlliance, Zurich, Aon and Marsh were among the major sponsors.

Butterworth said the money would be used to develop the new IRM website, with hotlinks to sponsors, and other projects.

He said a number of organisations had already offered to sponsor the IRM conference in October.

Claims Direct failed to limit the preliminary issues involved in the Claims Direct Test Cases (2002) in the Court of Appeal last week.

The Court of Appeal upheld the extent of issues originally set by Senior Costs Judge Master Hurst in the case between the no win-no fee company and insurers.

They will go to trial on the original issues in the near future.
