Event description
DEMYSTIFYING DELAY IN START UP (DSU)/ADVANCE LOSS OF PROFIT (ALP) COVER

About this event

Delay in Start Up (DSU) - also referred to as Advance Loss of Profits (ALOP) - insures project owners for the financial consequences of a delay to a project completion arising from an insured physical damage event.

In this field, undreamt-of possibilities emerge for the DSU/ALOP underwriter. Risk monitoring activities carried out by underwriters during the policy period include the progress of work, deviations from the original plans, and the updating of the scheduled date of commencement of the insured business. This places the underwriters in a position to recognize changes in the risk and to react appropriately, in the event of a claim. For this reason, the ALOP underwriter must be sufficiently experienced to selectively request the precise technical information required on the risk to be insured and to assess this information in an expert manner.

Also, the range of material damage which triggers the insurer's liability in DSU/ALOP insurance is by far the broadest, compared with all the other types of Business Interruption/loss of profit insurance. It is very important to examine the critical path of the project and determine the float available subsequent to an Insured event to mitigate the exposure. Eventually, the ALOP exposure would depend on the date upon which commercial operations would have commenced absent any insured events versus the actual date of commencement.

Underwriting and handling of DSU/ALOP losses is complex and each case represents a unique situation and requires experienced brokers, underwriters, claims experts, loss adjusters and consultants. To understand the issues and challenges in DSU/ALOP cover and to establish a stable and profitable operating environment for the construction and insurance industry, please join us for this event where we will be drawing on the experience of industry experts to provide insights on the issues, challenges and potential solutions for the DSU/ALOP cover.
