Premium collections… do they have the solution?

Having said goodbye to Kishan Vanmali following eliminations in task six, it was revealed that the remaining three contestants would have one more task to complete.

The task, sponsored by the FSCA (Financial Sector Conduct Authority), was to look at the future of the premium collection regulatory framework.

With a tough task at hand, Judge Simon, Judge Kedi and guest Judge Caroline Da Silva, Division Executive of Regulatory Policy at the FSCA, pulled no punches when they revealed that this would make or break their chances of being the next Insurance Apprentice.

This was an individual task for the remaining contestants, and they would have a tough time making a good impression on Caroline.

We would like to thank the FSCA for sponsoring the seventh episode of The Insurance Apprentice 2019.

The task at hand

The apprentices were asked to act as employees of the FSCA, tasked with looking at the future of premium collections and what needs to change around premium collection in the interests of the industry, the consumers and the institutions.

What regulations has the FSCA put in place that specifically deals with premium collection? What are the gaps that the FSCA needs to address when it comes to this? How will these changes impact the industry? What specific changes will we see, and will these changes improve the industry? These are just some of the questions that the apprentices had to tackle.

Most importantly, they had to make some recommendations as to any additional principles of their own that they thought the Registrar could consider when looking at the future of premium collections.
