Viewpoint: War risk carriers on hostile ground, despite rate increases

Underwriters are now scrutinising voyages on a case-by-case basis, with large rises in premium occurring over the past two months. Lead insurers have already requested significant increases to premiums, renegotiated terms of cover and introduced riders to hull and machinery/war risks and cargo covers
