Specialist underwriter Attento announced the launch of a new inflation endorsement product that protects the value of insured vehicles.

The new product ensures that pay-out is no longer capped at the original insured value, despite any changes to the value of the vehicle. Instead, by factoring inflation protection into the premium and a revaluation at six months, Attento ensures that the insured receives the actual cash value (ACV) of the vehicle at the time of the loss.
