What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

 

Professional indemnity insurance is a type of insurance that provides cover for financial losses which have incurred due to advice provided by you to your clients.

 

Who needs professional indemnity insurance?

Any business who: gives advice to clients, offers a professional service or handles client data / intellectual property.

 

What does professional indemnity insurance cover?

  • Professional negligence – should you make a mistake or give incorrect advice.
  • Breach of confidence – if you share information without approval
  • Breach of copyright – if you infringe upon intellectual property of any kind
  • Defamation – should you make libellous statements about your client
  • Document damage / loss whilst under your care / supervision
  • Damage caused by an employee via a malicious act

 

How much cover do I need?

Ultimately the level of cover required depends entirely upon your occupation and client base. We are able to obtain terms on risks ranging from ‘one-man band’ consultants right through to FCA / GFSC regulated companies.

 

Businesses need to consider the potential cost of legal fees and compensation that could be due should you have a claim. It may also be worth considering if any of your clients i.e. local authorities etc, require a minimum level of cover.

 

Clegg Gifford are able to look at increasing limits of indemnity mid-term should it be required.

 

How much does professional indemnity cost?

Insurers determine premium based upon numerous factors, mainly:

  • Size and type of business: Larger businesses generally have greater risk exposure due to the potential size of financial and reputational losses, as a result, insurers ask for higher premium levels.
  • Nature of the work you do: Certain industries are naturally exposed to greater risk levels due to the historic claims environment.
