What we offer

We recognise that Fintech is one of the most vibrant sectors in the world right now, harnessing the latest intellectual capital, leading technologies and revolutionary partnerships to disrupt established processes in the financial services industry. Operating a business in such a specialist and evolving environment means fintech firms face complex risks which is why we’ve launched, what we believe to be, the first dedicated Fintech and Payment Services unit.

Our dedicated team work closely with all types of fintech operators to identify risks and successfully deliver the best possible risk mitigation and insurance solutions to meet your requirements. We constantly engage with key influencers in the sector, keep up-to-date with changing regulations and maintain dialogue with Fintech industry associations to ensure your insurance coverage is tailored to your needs.

We offer clients comprehensive insurance protection against direct losses and third party liability risk via our proprietary fintech wording. Coverage is tailored to offer a bespoke fintech solution, as opposed to traditional off the shelf insurance forms which do not effectively address the full scope of exposures.

What our clients say

Protean were highly recommended to us by a trusted party years ago. We have since been delighted by their proactive and "customer-first" attitude. We would recommend them anytime.

We were introduced to Protean by a trusted partner in 2016 and have worked with them ever since. As experts in Fintech Insurance, they provide a high level of technical expertise, coupled with excellent service. Protean are well connected in the Fintech arena and are also a useful sounding board on broader risk and insurance matters.

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!

We were recommended to work with Protean by one of our Venture Capital investors. As a FinTech business we have very specific requirements, meaning that we require support from advisers with the expertise in our sector. We found Protean Risk to be knowledgeable, organised and supportive throughout the process. We would be happy to recommend their services to others

Protean Risk were incredibly helpful when it came to meeting our insurance requirements; mostly down to their breadth of knowledge in their niche sector of insurance and their exemplary service levels. This allowed us to acquire a bespoke insurance package covering relevant insurances at competitive premium levels.

As a business newly authorised by the FCA, we have very specific PI requirements and also want to ensure the premium costs are competitive. Protean took time to understand our requirements and provide us with an efficient and responsive service. We can happily recommend their services.
