    An Insurer and an Insurance Intermediary may only recommend to a Client a contract of General Insurance that does not meet all the Client's requirements if it clearly explains to the Client, at the point of making the recommendation, that the contract does not fully meet the Client's requirements and the differences in the insurance recommended.

    • COB 7.8.3 Guidance

      When deciding what level of explanation is appropriate for a Client to whom a contract of insurance that does not fully meet that Client's requirements is recommended, the Insurer or Insurance Intermediary should take into consideration the knowledge held by the Client in relation to the type of insurance in question. The explanation should include sufficient information so that the Client can understand easily the differences between what is recommended and the Client’s requirements, and the advantages and disadvantages of the recommended insurance, including any financial or other risks the Client may face if the recommended policy does not fully meet the Client’s requirements.
