Professional Indemnity Insurance at a glance

What does it cover?

Professional indemnity insurance provides cover for legal costs and expenses involved in defending a claim, as well as compensation payable if you are found to be responsible for causing financial loss to your client because of negligent advice, services or designs you have provided.

Who needs it?

Certain professions must have professional indemnity in place to conduct their business, and a compulsory condition required by some regulatory bodies. Examples include accountants, architects, IFAs, insurance brokers, solicitors and surveyors. Other professionals must have professional indemnity insurance as part of a contractual obligation, whilst many choose this cover for protection and security should their advice or service delivered fails to meet clients' expectations.
