What insurance do I need to consider as a mortgage broker?

Professional indemnity insurance can help protect you from a range of claims made against the advice and services you provide, including privacy and breaches, false or misleading advice, errors and omissions, and loss or theft of records.

What’s covered?

  • Professional indemnity cover

    The limit of liability is the maximum amount that can be provided under the insurance policy.

  •  Breach of duty

    Cover for claims from alleged breaches of fiduciary duty in the performance of professional services.

  • Defamation

    Cover for claims for defamation, libel and slander committed in the performance of professional services.

  • Breach of privacy or confidentiality and intellectual property infringement 

    Cover for claims alleging breaches of privacy law or confidentiality, and cover for breaches of intellectual property rights in relation to trade secrets and patents.

  • Lost or damaged documents

    For claims arising from loss or damage to third-party documents.

  •  Public liability as an additional policy

    Help protect your business against third- party claims resulting from accidents or injuries that occur as a result of your business activities with public liability insurance.

Frequently asked questions

A certificate of currency is proof that you hold a current insurance policy.   

Please contact us once you have accepted your policy and we will arrange for a certificate of currency to be sent to you from your insurer. 

Even if you work from home, the risks are just as prevalent as if you worked from an office. 

Your clients can still hold you liable for improper advice, negligence or other breaches. 

As a mortgage broker, you should consider whether professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance can help protect your business.

The risk exposures of each business can differ based on a variety of factors. Some known and emerging exposures you may face include: 

  • Negligence or breach of duty allegations from disgruntled customers 

  • Injury or property damage claims from a third party 

  • Property damage due to natural disaster 

  • Cyber-attacks if your customer or business data is stored by a third party, including accounting software and tools. 

It’s not uncommon for mortgage brokers to provide other services, including financial advice and/or accountancy services.

If you add another service to your business, you do need to let us know, and we can advise if your current coverage is sufficient, or if amendments will need to be made and additional costs apply.
