How has the sector coped with the pandemic?

Paul Trail: “Pretty well from my perspective. If you look at the personal lines market, volumes were down 20% at the peak of lockdown; but that has been balanced out by the commercial volumes which were up by the same amount. From a premium financing view it has been pretty flat, but we have been very busy with forbearance requests and customers concerned about how they were going to make their payments.
