Insurance for IFAs and Financial Advisors
As you may know the insurance market for Financial Advisors has been challenging for a number of years. The professional indemnity insurance market for financial advisors is restricted to only a handful of insurers. We work very closely with two specialist insurers, both of who have been insuring Financial Advisors for a number of years. We strongly believe that experience and continuity is extremely important, and helps us obtain competitive solutions for our clients.
Our relationships with our Financial Advisors goes beyond arranging the insurance. Our expertise in this sector allows us to works on a consultative basis with our clients. We understand that certain advisory work, such a high risk investment vehicles or large defined benefit pension transfers, may impact your professional indemnity insurance. We work closely with our clients and the professional indemnity insurers, in order to provide guidance on the implications of higher risk work.
