Underwriting considerations

What will Professional Indemnity Insurers look for in order to assess the risk ?

Company size – The overall size of the firm. The Insurer s will want to understand the size of your firm in terms of the number of directors and qualified staff who give advice and also the turnover of the firm.

Qualifications and experience – Insurers will most probably want to see a CV which shows that the relevant people within the firm have a minimum of five years’ experience.

Type of work – Insurers will want to understand the nature of the work that you are involved in.

Contract sizes- Insurers will be interested in the Total Contract Values that you are involved in and not just your own Fee Income for the job. Insurers see a direct correlation between the Contract Values and the potential exposure that they could face to large claims.

Retroactive exposure – Does the business have an exposure to claims arising from past work, whether in the current business or a previous company.

Overseas Exposure – Does the practice carry out work for overseas clients.

Claims Experience – The claims experience is an important factor in the assessment of a risk. This information reflects on the type of work carried out by a company. It also reflects the quality of the company’s work, experience, staff & internal risk management.
