Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about PI insurance for the industry:

1. What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance provides cover should a third party suffer a financial loss as a result of your professional error, omission or negligence.

2.  What does “any one claim” mean? 

The limit of indemnity purchase is in respect of each and every claim from separate acts of negligence notified to insurers during the period of insurance.  

3.  What Professional Indemnity limit should I consider? 

We would recommend you review your contracts both pending and current to assess whether your limit of Indemnity is sufficient.

4.  Does being a limited company or sole trader make any difference? 

From an insurance point of view, this will not materially affect the quotation provided. Should you change the status of your business during the insurance year, please contact us immediately so that we may notify underwriters.

5.  Will my policy cover sub-contractors?

Yes, the policy will cover your IT contractors or consultants. This is only provided, if you have taken reasonable steps to ensure that our rights of recovery against your sub-consultant are not restricted or financially limited by a specific term in a contract or other agreement. Also, the insured will need to declare the sub-consultant fees in the proposal form.
