What we offer

As a specialist broker for Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs), we understand how the the operating environment is becoming ever more complex and that managers are increasingly exposed to making errors.  Whether that is from adhering to compliance regulations, dealing with the FCA or keeping up with best practices for corporate governance and risk management.

No matter how diligent, any manager’s decision can result in losses for the company or a third party, and the directors and officers who made the decision can be held personally liable for those losses and the cost of any resultant investigations.

IFA Directors' & Officers' Liability (D&O) insurance protects managers from claims which may arise from the decisions and actions taken within the scope of their regular duties. It pays for defence costs and financial losses, as well as providing cover for costs arising from administrative and criminal proceedings or in the course of investigations by the regulator or criminal prosecutors.

A D&O policy not only covers the personal liability of company directors and officers as individuals, but also the reimbursement of the insured company in case it has paid the claim of a third party on behalf of its managers in order to protect them.

What our clients say

After speaking to a number of potential providers, we chose Protean to arrange our PI cover because we were impressed by their understanding of the unique characteristics of the specific niche market that we operate in and their ability to source bespoke cover at a competitive cost. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

I would just like to say I am extremely happy with the service that we have received from Protean. We have been very fortunate to find such an efficient, knowledgeable and proactive insurance broker in a difficult marketplace and I found their up-front and honest approach refreshing when dealing with our renewal terms. We came to Protean with an issue that our terms weren’t adequate for our business and I’m delighted to say that with their support an outcome that we thought wouldn’t have been possible has been achieved. 

Protean were recommended to us by one of our industry contacts and were able to find the right solution for us where other brokers had failed. We would highly recommend them.
