We can discuss who has a covered claim when the CA is negligent, but I
assert that insofar as the purpose of this insurance is to protect the
CA, then it is not a valid subject for a CAB Forum requirement. CAs
should take out whatever insurance they feel is necessary to adequately
address business risk, but the amount of such insurance should be a CA
decision, not a regulatory decision.
