The sharing economy is all around us.

There are over 6 million listings on AirBNB worldwide.

According to Uber, there are 900,000 drivers signed up to deliver people and products all around the United States.

We haven't even begun to count the people that work with other home-sharing, ride-sharing, or food delivery services. All of these people have exposure to loss whenever they log into their whatever-sharing app. These sharing services have created new risk exposures for the individuals that are sharing their "whatevers". Join David Thompson as he deals with these risk exposures, their insurance implications, and how we can provide the solutions that they need.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify the risk exposures associated with the sharing economy for individual customers.
  • Determine how those risk exposures may be covered or excluded in personal lines policies.
  • Describe methods to solve any coverage gaps that may be created by the sharing activities.
