The “sharing economy” isn’t coming.  It’s here.   For many insurance professionals, this means a new set of coverage challenges applicable to traditional policy forms.  This hour-long class looks at the definition of the “sharing economy” for insurance professionals in a time when it is common to rent one’s home out, or, hire a private ride via a ridesharing app. 

Participants will:

  • Review how standard industry homeowner’s forms define and then treat home-based businesses
  • Learn how the industry is changing its forms to account for companies such as AirBnB and VRBO. 
  • Learn how the insurance industry is responding to ridesharing and related risks in the personal auto market
  • Take a view of “what’s next?” regarding some of the looming apps and insurance issues they may trigger
