Business insurance for advertising and creative professionals

Advertising and the creative industries are often driven by passion, so insurance can back you up financially against various risks and help you concentrate on doing what you love.

Your work likely requires talented digital professionals, so if you employ staff, employers’ liability insurance may become a requirement. For advertising agencies and freelance creatives, client complaints can lead to court cases, so it’s good to know there’s indemnity insurance to assist with related costs.

From accidents at marketing events to cyber-attacks on your image database, the risks are many – our business insurance can be tailored to fit the creative work you do.
