Why do Consultants need Insurance?

If you’re running a consulting business, you’re no stranger to long hours and hard work. Behind every polished client presentation or pitch, there were hours of research, brainstorming and calculations. Unfortunately though, every project you work on and every client you win also brings with it the possibility of something going wrong. Whether a client your advice caused them financial loss, or a major storm damages your premises that you’re no longer able to operate, there are many incidents that could occur that can have significant consequences for your business. Therefore, insurance is an important consideration for consulting businesses to help ensure you can keep focusing on wins rather than the resulting financial difficulties of certain events.

What insurance do Consultants need?
There are a few types of insurance you may need to protect your business. In our opinion, one of the most important forms of insurance required is Professional Indemnity Insurance. Professional indemnity Insurance helps protect you from the cost of a lawsuit when a client is dissatisfied with your work. In addition to Professional Indemnity Insurance, you may also need other forms of cover. If your work involves dealing with any members of the public, you might also need Public and Products Liability Insurance. Business Insurance is also a good option if you operate out of a physical business premises, and/or have business assets and equipment. Speaking to your broker can help you understand the different options you have so you can make a decision that’s right for you.
