What businesses need to cover professional indemnities?

If your business provides advice, a professional service, design or supervision you may need to consider Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII).

  • Protect your reputation
    Claims are not only time-consuming and expensive, they can prevent you from trading. Cover ensures that losses are mitigated and keeps your reputation intact.
  • Proactive mitigation
    Cover assists you before a formal claim is made. As soon as you realise a potential mistake, tell us and we will ensure your policy responds to mitigate the error and cover the cost of defense.
