  • Vincent Caprio's Blog Evolving Innovations » Blog Archive » NanoBCA Interview with Allen Gelwick, Executive VP, Lockton Companies
    then they measure the risks identified as best they can to determine the cost of risk transfer through insurance Any business should use a similar process to decide whether to transfer the risk to a qualified insurer or alternatively to retain the risk NanoBCA So it sounds like you are saying that many companies do not do this Mr Gelwick Well we can start by acknowledging that less than 100 nanomaterials have been characterized yet there are in active development Universities where a majority of the research is conducted have proven to be very reluctant to allow independent safety assessments of their nanomaterial laboratory activities Small companies tend to not have the funds necessary to properly assess nanosafety or at least they perceive the cost as too expensive And larger companies like Johnson Johnson tend to be self insured and may or may not have an understanding of the risks including risks to supply chains upon which they rely NanoBCA As you mentioned previously though insurance policies do to some extent currently cover risks associated with nanotechnologies Mr Gelwick Generally the structure of the policies relevant here are classified as occurrence policies which means that if you have a policy for year 2014 then any claim in future years say in 2018 that points to an event in 2014 will be covered by the terms of the policy as it existed in 2014 Note every state has different laws in this regard which creates a level of complexity So for illustration sake if an occurrence policy does not exclude nano then in many states plaintiffs attorneys would be able to sue for every single year under a separate policy for each year that a suspect material was produced This creates a scenario where multiple claims are possible That is why the occurrence coverage trigger vs the claims made coverage trigger presents such significantly different financial consequences NanoBCA So is this scenario bad for the insured or the insurer or both Mr Gelwick Any ambiguity usually works to the benefit of the insured Thus it is commonly believed that this is ultimately a problem for the insurer However the reality is that this scenario will likely hurt the insured more because the company may end up in a situation post claim that it can not find an insurer that will provide coverage at an acceptable cost moving forward from any claims which as mentioned above could also impact exit strategies for investors As claims increase insurers will predictably evolve to either limiting coverage or creating exclusions NanoBCA You make a good point But what claims are out there currently Mr Gelwick Of current significance is the recent hip replacement claims against Johnson Johnson and its subsidiaries These claims account for over 4 billion in offered settlements by Johnson Johnson You can bet that plaintiff attorneys are considering this as a template for future litigation on other products NanoBCA Aren t the insurers incentivized to figure out a way to create a market to sell nano specific policies and to control risks associated therewith Mr Gelwick Yes and they are working on it For starters the reinsurance sector will likely begin inserting and requiring answers to nanomaterial specific questions to assist with the underwriting process This will force the applicant to answer difficult risk questions associated with nanomaterials Since nanomaterials are rarely disclosed yet are commonly incorporated into products it is currently almost impossible for insureds to answer these questions completely Failure to do so however will likely create coverage gaps particularly as it relates to supply chain risk This process will in some instances evolve to create insurance exclusions However where enough understanding and data is available buy back policies or endorsements will likely become available NanoBCA Is there a precedent for this seemingly awkward point in time that we are in with regard to nanotech and insurance Mr Gelwick Most would cite asbestos and the evolution of pollution exclusions but this in my view this is too narrow a focus and assumes the worst when it is more likely that only a limited percentage of nanotechnology will equate to this level of risk In fact nanotechnology will likely help reduce risks in the future as evidenced by nano enabled products that can clean up pollution However I agree with some observers who believe that we are in unchartered territory as the number of new and innovative chemicals not to even mention nanomaterials that have recently been introduced into commerce is growing at a steep exponential rate Risks are not yet known as to most of these Michael Depledge the former Chief Scientific Advisor of the UK Government s Environment Agency gave a presentation on point this June in London at the Royal Institute for EMTECH an emerging fund being created to invest in emerging technologies He offered two slides that from an insurance standpoint help us consider emerging risk from a historical standpoint Those slides illustrated that the lag time from the introduction of any new technology to the adequate recognition and understanding of associated risks is generally about 10 years The number of new chemicals and materials has experienced truly off the charts exponential growth in the 21st Century What the future holds in terms of risk is literally growing faster than we can possibly fathom NanoBCA So how do you manage this increase of unknown risks Mr Gelwick Insurance companies will simply have to increase the size of their reserve funds to offset incurred and unknown risks on these new materials because they may likely have to pay claims on them down the line NanoBCA Any other observations to share regarding the future of nanotechnology risk insurance Mr Gelwick People often ask me if insurers will simply exclude nanotechnology Nanotechnologies have been in the stream of commerce now for over ten years and to date only one insurance company that we know of has put an exclusion on nanotechnology But things are changing rapidly Most insurance companies are
