Professional Indemnity insurance

What does a Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance policy cover?

Professional Indemnity insurance (PI) is there for you when you make a mistake for which you are sued or investigated or both.

PI supports you in two main areas:

  1. Covers costs associated with regulatory hearings, including defence costs
  2. Pays any damages or settlements

With Howden, you can be assured your policy has been worded by someone who truly understands your industry – and the complex risks you face.

Optional extras 

Worldwide jurisdiction

Contract overseas? No problem. Wherever in the world you work, our cover goes with you.

Automatic reinstatement of your limit of liability

If you need to make a claim, the amount you are awarded does not affect your limit of liability. Your maximum limit is available to you even after you have already made a claim.

Retroactive cover (excluding known circumstances)

You are covered for any work completed since the start of your Professional Indemnity Insurance - even if you have switched insurer.

Our PI policies can be extended to cover:

  • Loss of documents or computer records
  • Dishonest, fraudulent or malicious acts
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Trade practices legislation
  • Contractual liabilities
  • Civil penalties
  • Intellectual property (breach of confidentiality, plagiarism or infringement of copyright, trademark or registered design or patent)
  • Costs for representation at disciplinary or coronial enquiries
