Allianz Update: FCA Business Interruption test case appeal outcome

Following today’s announcement of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the FCA’s business interruption case we wanted to advise you of our next steps. Although Allianz was not a defendant in the test case, we welcome the clarity the judgment will provide and have continued to make payments on claims where we believe there is valid cover.

As you will appreciate, the content of the judgment is complex in nature and so we’ll require some time to digest the points of law and understand how this will affect customers. We’ll send a holding letter to all affected customers by 22 January in line with the FCA guidelines. Following this, a further letter will be issued detailing how the outcome of the judgment affects your customer’s claim.

Where a claim has previously been repudiated, this decision remains unchanged.
