Professional Indemnity

Protection against unsatisfied customers and complaints due to the professional services they received

Professional Indemnity is aimed at providing protection against financial loss resulting from a legal liability to a third party.  

Anyone who offers services or advice in a specialised field could be held accountable at law for the advice or service to the general standards of their profession or industry. 

Some lines of business are therefore legally required to have this cover in place and this is where AIG is able to offer insurance solutions for a wide range of modern professional activities.
