ABI Fraud Conference

ABI Fraud Conference

In Partnership with Ordnance Survey

Thursday, 13 September 2012
09:00 – 16:40
Venue: ABI 7th Floor Conference Suite, EC2V 7HQ

Insurance fraud impacts on insurers, their customers and society in general. Reducing and deterring insurance fraud is a priority for the ABI and the insurance industry. Insurers incur costs in investigating suspected frauds, which also impact their ability to deal with genuine claims quickly.  For honest customers, it leads to higher premiums. ABI estimates that fraud adds, on average, an extra £50 a year to the annual insurance bill for every UK policyholder. Insurance fraud is also known to fund and facilitate other serious crime.  

The conference will provide an opportunity for senior fraud practitioners to come together and discuss:

  • A CEO view of the importance of embedding an anti-fraud culture and capability  within all aspects of sales, marketing, underwriting and claims
  • The benefits to be derived from current and planned industry capability
  • The Government’s overarching anti-fraud strategy and the role insurers can play in ensuring its success
  • The changing regulatory environment. How will insurers adapt to these changes? Are they a threat? Do they present opportunities?
  • What drives fraudulent behaviour and how can the industry change the current perception that insurance fraud is a victimless crime?
  • How the fraud landscape and insurance industry response is perceived by consumer representatives and what is on their wish list?
  • What is the industry vision for taking fraud prevention to the next level? 

Who should attend?


  • Counter fraud professionals
  • Public affairs teams
  • Anyone with an interest in combatting fraud
