Actuaries and pension consultants
Why do you need professional indemnity insurance
Any professional providing specialist advice is at risk of being held to account for financial loss to a client because of negligent advice given. For consulting actuaries, pension consultants, and pension administrators, having professional indemnity insurance (PII) in place is essential to protect the business and reassure clients.
Actuarial consultant professional indemnity insurance is a necessity for actuarial firms and contracted actuaries licenced under the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA). They must comply with the rules set out in the handbook for Designated Professional Body Firms, and Licensed Authorised Professional Firms, which states having PII is a requirement.
Pension consultants professional indemnity insurance is a mandatory requirement to cover costs incurred defending a claim should this situation arise. PII cover will also provide protection should a business be liable for any compensation payable to the client.
