Mortgage brokers and IFAs

Why do you need professional indemnity insurance?

Professional indemnity insurance (PII) is mandatory for mortgage brokers and Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs) who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Mortgage advisers and IFAs provide specialist advice that comes with a risk of being held to account for a client’s financial loss should negligent advice be given. PII will protect your business if it is found liable for any compensation payable to the claimant, and any legal costs incurred defending the claim.

Having PII in place to deal with these claims is essential to protect your business and reassure clients.
