Following the recent changes to the Ogden rate announced by the Lord Chancellor on 27th February, we at Focus feel it important to communicate how this change impacts you and your clients.
What you need to know:
- The rate has changed from +2.5% to -0.75%
- The rate reflects the level of investment return that a claimant can expect to achieve by investing their award
Why the change affects you and your clients:
- One of the major consequences of the Odgen decision relates to the adequacy of Limits of Indemnity for Casualty risks.
