Sector Associates Join UKHospitality
Specialist insurance broker Sector Associates have joined UKHospitality, the trade body representing the UK’s hospitality sector, to provide independent insurance advice to their membership.
Sector Associates join UKHospitality at a time when the industry faces unprecedented challenges with premises and venues closed across the UK, employees furloughed and social distancing measures in place. Last week, the Financial Conduct Authority wrote to Insurers asking them to explain why they are not dealing with Business Interruption claims caused by Covid-19.
A full review of insurance policies including Business Interruption Covid-19 cover, advice on how to save insurance premium and practical guidance on managing unoccupied premises are some of the services Sector Associates offer.
Sector Associates Managing Director, Jamie Jenkinson said: “At a very challenging time for the hospitality industry, we recognise the importance of providing independent advice and guidance to businesses to help them mitigate their risk. The work UKHospitality do on behalf of their members has never been of greater significance and we look forward to working with them to help businesses through this period and onto recovery.”
UKHospitality is the voice of the sector, their main purpose is to campaign on the key issues affecting their members – such as immigration, employment shortages and costs, business rates and of course developments on the COVID-19 relevant to the industry. They also provide members with insights, guides, toolkits and much more to help them grow and thrive.
UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “This is a difficult time for the entire country, but our sector has been hit particularly hard. When times are tough, it is great to know that businesses representing every aspect of the sector are coming together to support each other. We need a strong, united industry more than ever, so it is great to welcome Sector Associates into UKHospitality.”
