Which specialist insurances might you need if you operate in the financial, legal and professional services sectors?


We will assist you in acquiring the right cyber coverage for your business, which will include essential elements of cover such as network security and privacy liability, privacy regulatory defence and penalties and funds transfer fraud.

Directors and officers liability

Our directors and officers liability solutions provide indemnity in the event of any hostile actions taken by third parties such as regulators, customers, receivers or administrators or indeed by a fellow director. The cover pays for legal fees to defend a case, as well as covering damages and settlements arising from such actions (so long as no fraudulent behaviour is established).

Professional indemnity

We will ensure your policy covers you and/or your company for any actual or alleged negligent acts, errors, omissions or breaches of your professional duties when providing professional advice and services. We can provide professional indemnity insurance across a wide spectrum of professions. In certain classes of business, we can acquire limits of indemnity of €20 million+.
