OTT Risk

Business Interruption for the sharing economy

The consequences of non-damage business interruption (NDBI), when events like pandemics don’t cause physical damage to a business but do result in significant drops in revenue, have been particularly clear since 2020. Small businesses and gig workers are particularly vulnerable to losses of income during events beyond their control, but these losses tend to be uninsured.

OTT Risk, an MGA founded during the Covid-19 pandemic, is developing new approaches to underwriting non-damage business interruption insurance. It’s now partnered with Apollo ibott Syndicate 1971, at Lloyd’s, to offer revenue protection to the users of digital economy platforms.

Topics include

  • How the principle of parametric insurance is extending from covering catastrophic events to non-physical losses
  • Examples of how small businesses and gig workers could be affected by future NDBI events
  • How digital economy platforms could offer revenue protection to their users
  • The data sources you need to underwrite NDBI insurance
  • OTT Risk’s experience in the Lloyd’s Lab
