Property/casualty insurance contracts and rating have long been based on a distinction between personal and commercial activities and loss exposures. Today, however, that distinction is being eroded as online networks such as Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, TaskRabbit, and others systematically organize individuals into global enterprises for ride-sharing, home-sharing, running errands, and other “personal” activities for making money.

Agents, underwriters, and claims representatives must monitor and respond to the ever-shifting boundary of coverage under auto, homeowners, and small business policies. Attendees of this seminar will learn the following:

  • The current extent of household activity in online sharing networks;
  • Key regulatory developments regarding insurance for sharing economy activities;
  • The current status of exposure for ride- and home-sharing under auto and homeowners policies;
  • The status of admitted and surplus lines programs for covering participants in online sharing networks; and
  • Coverage initiatives by market leaders.
