Professional & Financial Risks

Professional and financial risks insurance is designed to cover a range of industry-specific risks. The cover is provided in a suite of separate policies or in broad policy wording where the insured selects the components of cover required, depending on the risks faced by the insured.

Professional and financial risk claims are often complex and can involve significant financial and reputational consequences for the insured. This can lead to tension between the insurer and the insured.
