IAG chief executive Michael Hawker remains committed to an Asian acquisition by the end of next year - but is also pledging to return capital to shareholders if no suitable target emerges.
Speaking at the general insurer’s annual meeting yesterday, Mr Hawker confirmed the company’s acquisition strategy, saying scale was required to boost the insurer’s position.
He said the company’s size and diversity of risk meant it needed to expand in Asia. That reflected “a recognition that growth in Australia and New Zealand is not likely to generate sufficient growth” to keep pace with international insurance companies.
“We are primarily focusing on China, Malaysia, Thailand and India.
“One of the skills we think we could bring is in underwriting, and we are looking for someone with a skill in distribution,” Mr Hawker said, adding that motor vehicle insurance was the key target.No Comments »
The organizers of a statewide campaign to boost drivers’ wariness of wildlife on Colorado roads identified Highway 82 as one of the most hazardous routes in the state Tuesday.
Between 1993 and 2003, there were 632 reported collisions between wildlife and vehicles on Highway 82, according to Monique DiGiorgio, executive director of the Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project, which is heading the awareness campaign. There were 46 injuries reported in those crashes, although the research didn’t indicate any fatalities, she said.
That unfortunately changed this fall. Julian Gonzalez-Santillan of Carbondale was killed Nov. 4 when the car he was in swerved to miss an injured deer and rolled. He died on the scene. The accident occurred on westbound Highway 82 near Aspen Glen.No Comments »
Every car driver in Britain could pay an extra 50p in insurance premiums to meet the cost of compensation for the Berkshire rail crash, which is likely to generate one of the biggest motor insurance payouts in history.
As a crane began lifting the damaged First Great Western railway carriages from the crash site yesterday, lawyers began preparing claims on behalf of the 150 injured passengers and the families of the six passengers who died.
Legal sources suggested that the bill for insurers could be greater than the record £30m paid out after the Selby train crash three years ago, when a van driver, Gary Hart, fell asleep at the wheel and sent his vehicle careering down an embankment into the path of an intercity train.No Comments »
Autumn has finally arrived in Central Texas. Leaves are falling and the chill in the air inspires most of us to get out and around more.
Unfortunately, the same is true for wild animals, particularly, in San Marcos and Hays County, white-tailed deer.
According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), there are more than 1.5 million automobile crashes involving deer each year in the U.S., resulting in an estimated $1.1 billion vehicle damage and all too often, injury to the driver or passengers as well.
And with deer season now officially underway, the animals are even more likely to be on the move and running out into highways and neighborhood streets, the III says.
It can even happen on city streets, as local All State Insurance agent Linda Jalufka pointed out. “It was last week sometime,” Jalufka said, that she came across the aftermath of a vehicle-deer collision on West Hopkins Street near the National Guard Armory. “It had taken out the windshield, and didn’t kill the deer. A guy from the National Guard” was holding the animal down when she drove by, she added.No Comments »
OWNERS of cars have just today and tomorrow to register with insurance companies for 2005 car insurance, wrote the daily SME.
People can insure their vehicles with one of eight insurance companies, which have waited until the last moment to publish their insurance price lists for next year.
However, ČSOB Poisťovňa caused a stir in the insurance market this year by announcing its prices long before its competitors. In an attempt to attract clients the company introduced a new system of calculating the insurance fees based on a car engine’s power rather than its size.
By registering with ČSOB Poisťovňa by November 18, motorists could thus save thousands of crowns in insurance fees.
In order to prevent a major loss of clients, other insurance firms then came up with various last minute discounts, wrote the daily SME.No Comments »
