New regulations: an opportunity to evolve your business?

26 July 2018 Santam

  

 

The RDR (Retail Distribution Review) process is driving a number of regulatory reforms that put caps on fee earnings, challenge insurers and intermediaries to be more focused on due diligence processes, and demand significantly more in respect of data exchange and system integration. But it also represents an opportunity for intermediaries and insurers to evolve their businesses for the better.  By leveraging new technologies, creating partnerships, and leaning on each other, we can create new revenue streams, add efficiencies and improve our collective customer value propositions.  Customers need good advice more than ever and by effectively embracing and managing change, it is possible for us to use the change as a spring board for great success in future.

QUESTION

In terms of vicarious liability, damages should not be borne by companies in all conditions, but only in those circumstances which it is reasonable for them to do so. Do you agree?

ANSWER

Yes, damages should only be borne by companies in those circumstances which it is reasonable for them to do so.
No. If there is a sufficiently close link between the employee’s acts and the purposes and business of the employer, the employer should be held liable for delicts committed by their employees.
As long as the employee is acting within the course and scope of his or her duty… the employer will be held liable.
