Fintech insurance for fintech companies

Why do you need specialist Fintech insurance?

We know you’re worried about revenue, investment, talent, regulation, and future expansion. Insurance shouldn’t be one of the things you should worry about. Let us help protect you from:

  • Professional negligence
    Mistakes happen, we’re all human after all. Unfortunately mistakes in Fintech often come with large claims which can be expensive to defend or settle. Could your businesses reputation cover the cost of putting a mistake right?
  • Cyber-crime
    As a business providing products and services, which inherently create, amplify, and attract cyber risks, you’re a high-risk target for cyber-criminals. Can you afford to take the chance of a data breach?
  • Regulation and compliance
    Operating between finance and technology brings a lot of regulation. From General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to payment services directive (PSD2), there’s a lot for Fintech firms to contend with. Despite your best efforts, one or two issues can still take you by surprise. Are you prepared for the unexpected?

What insurance does a Fintech business need?

Not sure what Fintech insurance you need? We’ll discuss your requirements before presenting an insurance solution that meets your complexities, but you may wish to consider:

Professional indemnity - covers the legal and compensation costs you may have to pay if a client makes a claim against you.

Public liability – covers you for the cost of a claim arising from a suffered injury or property damage caused by you or your employees.

Employers' liability (EL)– compulsory by law for most businesses, EL provides cover if a worker suffers an injury or an illness they believe is your fault.

Directors and officers – also known as management liability portfolio insurance (MLP), provides any director, partner or employee acting in a managerial capacity on behalf of the company cover for defence costs incurred during a claim and awards made against you personally.

Cyber liability insurance – protects your business from cyber-criminal activity such as hacking, and the legal and reputational fallout caused from a data breach.
