Lloyd’s broker Tysers has launched two schemes to reflect the new live events landscape, which has changed considerably in the wake of the pandemic.
The schemes are Tysers Freelancers, an online insurance solution available 24/7 that provides cover for freelancers who work in music events across UK & Europe; and Tysers Elite, which provides coverage for the assets and liabilities of those who work in the festival industry, including touring bands.
Throughout the pandemic, Tysers said it has continued to help clients navigate increasingly challenging and evolving risk landscapes – and was a key player in helping to broker state support for the sector earlier this year, spearheading a campaign for a Government-backed insurance scheme, to get live festivals and gigs running again, which resulted in a first-of-its-kind Live Events Reinsurance Scheme.
Bob Pybus, head of Retail Broking and a member of the executive committee at Tysers, commented: “Navigating the last 18 months has been challenging for our clients and the industry, but we are stronger for the experience, and I am incredibly proud of how our teams have worked together across the business to deliver for our clients.”
Paul Chapman, managing director at Tysers, added: “We’re now seeing the rewards of the dedication and commitment of our talented teams with revenue returning to 2019 levels in Live Events and Property & Casualty.”
“This demonstrates the strength of Tysers’ brand across key lines of business, and our new products reflect our ability to provide forward-thinking, nimble wholesale and direct-to-client solutions. Our employees are our greatest asset and it’s fantastic that we continue to attract and retain such brilliant talent.”
