    The lock-down will be a windfall for insurance companies. Fewer claims on motor insurance and with people staying at home, fewer burglaries. Buy shares in Insurance?

    or many other types of payouts concerning business continuity.

    Saying that, the insurance companies are quite cheap at the moment - for example Aviva at a P/E of only 4.24, and dividend yield of 11%. Could be a good investment if it doesn't go bust first.

    Haha.. just what I was thinking.

    My insurer was in absolute meltdown when I tried to contact them earlier in the month and still is. The whole country has been claiming at the same time due to FCO advice against all travel. Hotels in financial distress and airlines not refunding, etc.
