What we offer

Protean Risk was an early adopter of the Crowdfunding space in insurance terms, arranging cover for a number of the pioneers in the industry. From an early stage we grasped the initiative and invested time in helping underwriters understand the sector and the risk profile of this new type of investment platform.  

In a sector where knowledge is not so widespread our clients, ranging from start-ups, through to well established platforms, benefit from the depth of our experience. We offer a full range of insurance services from Property, Liability, Professional Indemnity, Cyber Risks and Directors' & Officers' Liability through to Employee Benefits.  

Having an extensive range of Crowdfunding sector clients has helped us to develop a benchmarking capability, enabling us to compare insurance coverage and premiums. This allows us to advise our clients how they compare against a range of factors, such as Professional Indemnity insurance limits.  

Why Protean Risk?

  • Exclusive SME Crowdfunding Insurance Scheme
  • Depth of knowledge and experience in the sector
  • Track record of achieving highly competitive premium rates
  • Wide range of insurers and choice of coverage
  • Fast and efficient turnaround times

What our clients say

We engaged Protean to provide the full range of insurance for Crowdcube. As a rapidly growing business, we needed a specialist broker that can provide the depth of expertise, whilst retaining a personal service and having been personally introduced to Protean, we are delighted that they have met all of our expectations and we would happily recommend them.

Protean Risk was incredibly helpful and understood our business immediately. Most importantly they got us a deal we were very happy with in a really short space of time. In summary Great people to work with!

Protean Risk was the one name that kept coming up when we asked our trusted partners who we should approach for our PI and D&O cover. As a niche financial services business we wanted to find advisers that had deep expertise in the sector. We found Protean Risk were able to quickly understand our requirements and deliver a series of competitive quotes. They kept us well informed throughout the process and were very responsive to any queries. We would not hesitate in recommending Protean Risk to others.
