With over 20 years’ insuring businesses in the media and creative sectors, our portfolio of insured businesses range from one-man graphic designers and cameramen to mid-size event companies and PR firms to major film studios, global advertising agencies, and national news organisations. This breadth of appetite has taught us that no two businesses in these sectors are alike. That’s why we offer a selection of tailor-made insurance solutions to suit the needs of our clients around the world.
Business to Business
To keep pace with the media and creative industries, we have created four bespoke B2B professional indemnity products for companies who create and deliver content for third parties:
- Digital marketing
- Marketing, advertising and communications
- Commercial film producers
- Event organisers
All of our B2B policies include the following cover as standard:
- Broad, clear breach of contract cover - a critical cover in the B2B environment
- Rectification costs
- Payments towards outstanding fees
- Intellectual property
- Breach of confidentiality or privacy.
Business to Consumer
We have also created a B2C professional indemnity policy that has been tailored to companies that deliver content they create or acquire to the general public:
We’ve created an indemnity policy specifically designed to cover individuals with a public reputation and/or social media following. Hiscox is proud to be the only insurer to offer Influencer and Public Figure Protection.
Consolidation in the media industry
Hiscox are aware there is frequent takeover and merger activity in the media and creative industries, so we make sure they are covered. That’s why when clients insure with Hiscox we include:
- Automatic cover for an acquired entity
If the client buys a firm during the course of the policy then that firm is covered automatically, if it is less than 20% of the total turnover and its activities are consistent with your clients current business.
- Takeovers and mergers extended reporting period
If the client is open to acquisition, they have the option to extend their Hiscox policy to cover any past liabilities – potentially making their business more attractive to any buyer.
- Entertainment production insurance
