That's actually really interesting. Why can't insurers send out more detailed breakdowns of past claims as this would surely be a good tool for brokers to use to asses the level of cover their clients have and may need, and ultimately may be a very valuable sales tool to sway a client into taking increased / more appropriate cover?

Very good reading - shows what insurers can do with good loss adjusters
