Central Bank ‘taking advice’ on legal action over Covid-19 insurance cover
7 July 2020 | 0
Central Bank governor Gabriel Makhlouf has indicated the regulator is considering taking legal action to resolve standoffs between insurers and businesses on the paying out on losses stemming from Covid-19.
The Irish Times reports the Central Bank is “taking advice” on whether to follow the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) which last month brought a test case against eight insurers who denied business interruption claims.
An action taken in May by the Lemon & Duke pub in Dublin is among four test cases which have already been brought against insurer FBD Holdings, due to be heard in October.
