Industry needs to keep pushing on Ogden

26 Oct 2017

Proposed reforms to the personal injury discount rate, known as Ogden, would provide a positive rate change in the medium-term which the industry should continue to push for, according to BLM’s director of policy & government affairs, Alistair Kinley.

Commenting for an article in Insurance Business, Alistair said: “The debate on the discount rate has been going on for quite some time, and the movement of the rate in February from 2.5% to 0.75% is the first time it has been changed in the 16 years since it was set in 2001 by Lord Irvine of Lairg – based on the yield on index-linked government stock.”
