Insurance Tip of the Month – courtesy of Marsh* 

Each month we will be including a helpful insurance tip from our partners, Marsh, which we hope you’ll find helpful!All Management Consultants should hold Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance, so

What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?
Professional Indemnity is generally defined as an actual or alleged act, error or omission, misstatement, misleading statement, or breach of fiduciary duty or other duty committed when providing or failing to provide professional services. 

What is Public Liability? Public Liability insurance is designed to protect your business against claims resulting from accidents or injuries that occur as result of your business activities. For negligence to third parties, this cover does not cover you, the insured, it covers the cost of compensation for third party personal injuries and loss of or damage to third party property in which you are legally liable for.

Tip – If you provide professional advice or service for a fee, you may need Professional Indemnity Insurance. Public Liability covers the Public, not you, the insured.
