The Lunch & Learn series brings together a wide range of high level experts providing insights into various aspects of the property industry.

During this Lunch & Learn Session, Mark from Aon Valuation Services will provide a brief overview of the current state of the insurance market touching of issues such as pricing, capacity and claims (including the current Australian Bushfire claims situation) and will then move onto the specifics of valuing property assets for insurance purposes.  This discussion will include the basis of settlement and the importance of getting the sum insured correct as well as some of the more little known issues facing valuers such as the impact of demand surge price increases, removal of debris allowances, extra costs of re-instatement and the importance of identifying risk factors when valuing a property.
