Professional indemnity insurance for Insurance Brokers and Independent Financial Advisors


At the centre of your insurance programme is professional indemnity insurance (PII). This covers legal costs and expenses, as well as any damages or costs if you have, or are alleged to have, caused a client loss as a result of your advice or services, errors or omissions.

While professional indemnity has become a mainstream commercial insurance product, we maintain that insurance brokers and independent financial advisors require specialists in the sector. Lockton is ideally placed to provide sound guidance to face these unique challenges.

Our offering

Lockton is the world's largest privately owned global insurance broker, and by working with us you can capitalise on our wide ranging expertise, insurer relationships and market share.

For Insurance Brokers our professional indemnity policy wording is endorsed by the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA), ensuring that you will be receiving the highest standard of policy. As a Lloyds broker, we can also reach out to the wider market to provide cover for speciality risks as needed.
