Can Protection Insurance Kick-start Lending?

12th June 2013
  • ResPublica

A ResPublica launch event

On 12th June 2013, ResPublica will launch its latest publication, Risk Waiver: closing the protection gap and easing the flow of credit, which explores the potential for insurance protection products to stimulate the credit market.

Recent Bank of England of England statistics suggest current Government attempts to stimulate the market are having a limited effect on lending to businesses and consumers. What households and small businesses need is a solution to the credit squeeze that tackles the underlying issue, namely the presence of credit risk in the market.

Credit protection products, such as risk waivers, provide a valuable means of safeguarding consumer and business loans, closing the ‘protection gap’ whilst at the same time incentivise financial institutions to increase their spending. Can credit protection products kick-start lending?

The event will take place at 10.30am in the Attlee Suite, Portcullis House. Keynote remarks will be made by Heather Wheeler MP and Ian Liddell-Grainger MP, followed by a panel discussion with Q&A.

Speakers include:

  • Ian Liddell-Grainger MP, Chair, APPG on Taxation
  • Heather Wheeler MP, Secretary, the Insurance and Financial Services APPG
  • Paul Walsh, Chief Executive, CUNA Mutual Europe
  • Phillip Blond, Director, ResPublica (Chair)
  • Emmanuel Mamatzakis, Professor of Finance, University of Sussex
