About this Publication:

The Law of Insurance Intermediaries is the only text in South African law which comprehensively discusses the legal position of the various insurance intermediaries doing business in the local market. Three main types of intermediaries are identified, namely insurance brokers, insurance agents and Lloyd’s intermediaries. The rights and duties of these intermediaries are analysed and the effect of the Long- and Short-term Insurance Acts on these duties is explained. Local and foreign case law is considered to illustrate the relevant legal principles and to provide solutions to problems which may occur in South African law. This book is essential reading for lawyers operating in the field of insurance, as well as insurance companies and agents.
