The Swedish Club provides guide through marine insurance maze


DSC_1734The Swedish Club has once again extended a hand to the insurance industry; sharing its in-depth experience with insurance professionals at the latest Marine Insurance Course, which took place at the Club’s head office in Gothenburg last week.

Delegates from all areas of the marine insurance industry met to learn more about key aspects of marine insurance, looking in detail at both the practical and legal aspects of the profession. Participants were provided with knowledge and skills that could be taken back into the workplace – ranging from the legal implications of terms and conditions, to the practical handling of claims and loss prevention.

“Not only do we once again have a record number of members attending: this year’s participants ranged from those new to the industry, to veterans with more than a decade of experience within the business,” said Marina Smyth Samsjö, Marketing Communications Manager.

The delegates represented The Swedish Club’s interests around the world, joining the course from the UK, Germany, Netherlands, P.R. of China, France, Hong Kong, Iran, Norway, Canada, Greece, Singapore, Turkey – and of course, Sweden.

Ms Samsjö added: “This course provides an excellent opportunity for people working for shipowners, shipmanagers and marine insurance brokers to improve their knowledge of marine insurance, learn more about what The Swedish Club can offer and most of all enhance their professional network.”
