In passing it also rethinks the approach to the protection of policyholders reasonable expectations of bonuses in withprofits life insurance through a revisit to the (in)famous case Equitable Life Assurance Society v Hyman [2000] UKHL 39 particularly to its relevant business and regulatory background.The first detailed monograph on the divergence of UK contract and insurance law on policyholders reasonable expectations.1.
