If you're looking for business insurance in any of the following sectors then skip ahead and start finding out about the insurance available to you:
IT and technology businesses
As an IT and technology business, you’ll be working with expensive equipment and sensitive client data. Insurance means you’re protected against the things you can’t see coming. We insure a range of professions, from IT consultants to web designers and web developers.
Coaching, training and education
As a professional in coaching, training or education, insurance is a key part of your business plan. You need to know that you and those you’re responsible for are protected. We insure specific professions, including tutors and private teachers.
Marketing and media companies
In fast-paced, creative industries like marketing and media, insurance is really important. You’ll be working with intellectual property every day, so you need to know you’re covered. We insure a range of professions, from musicians and DJs to videographers and photographers.
Retail and shops
When you’ve worked hard to build your business, it’s important to protect it. Your stock, your premises and your good name all matter, so make sure they’re covered. We cover specific business types including shop owners and market traders, as well as specific trades such as jewellers, antique dealers, travel agents and florists.
Health and wellbeing businesses
Whether you’re a yoga instructor, a dietician or you practice reiki, your job is all about helping people, so you need the confidence of knowing you’re properly covered. We insure a range of professions, from massage therapists and personal trainers to dentists and opticians.
Hair and beauty businesses
You enjoy working with your clients to give them the look they want, but for your hair and beauty business, insurance matters if things don’t work out as planned. We insure a range of professions, from hairdressers and barbers to beauticians and nail technicians.
Design and construction
Design and construction is an exciting field, but big projects can mean complications and misunderstandings. Business insurance provides peace of mind if things don’t go to plan. We insure a range of professions, from architects, engineers and assessors to electricians, scaffolders and landscapers.
Financial and legal businesses
For professionals working in financial or legal businesses, the right insurance policy is an essential part of protecting yourself, your clients, your company and your good reputation. We insure a range of professions, including accountants and solicitors.
If you’re running a not-for-profit organisation, insurance is an important step towards making sure you can deal with the unexpected and continue with the good work you do. We insure a range of business types, including charities and volunteers.
As a professional complaint handler, insurance is there to protect you from disagreements, misunderstandings and the things that just don't go to plan, despite your best efforts.
Event and wedding organisers
For event and wedding organisers, insurance is critical. You work hard to deliver the perfect occasion but you need to be protected against disagreements and even injuries.
