NIG launches Professional Indemnity for their Professionals eProduct
Authored by NIG
You asked, we delivered. We know from broker feedback that there’s huge demand for the ability to add Professional Indemnity cover as an optional extra, which is why we’ve made it available as part of our Professionals eProduct.
While Professional Indemnity cover isn’t a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Mistakes like releasing the wrong version of new software, or using an image they don’t have permission to use can leave your clients open to costly legal action if they don’t have the right protection in place.
Making things easier for you and your clients
With this in mind, we’ve made Professional Indemnity cover available as an optional add-on with our Professionals eProduct, making things quicker and more straightforward for both you and your clients.
Professional Indemnity is now available across 80 trades including IT consultants, advertising agencies, graphic designers, estate agents and more.

It will be easily accessible to all brokers who trade with us via TheHub and Acturis.
