Insurance for investment advisors

At Lockton Affinity, we understand that the traditional financial profession is changing rapidly.

With more available solutions for clients and vast regulatory reform, the scope of duties for financial professionals continues to change. We’ve developed the right coverage at the right price to meet these changing needs.

(Coverage is provided by Beazley, a Lloyds company.)

ERRORS AND OMISSIONS

As an investment advisor, you face a multitude of risks, and Errors & Omissions (E&O) Liability Insurance with fiduciary coverage is a critical piece of protection for you and your career. E&O covers certain legal fees, judgments or settlements resulting from claims and litigation brought against you for the services you provided.

Fiduciary coverage meets ERISA standards and ensures any fiduciary duties you perform are also covered.

Many industry groups and associations offer E&O policies with shared aggregate limits. With a shared limit policy, there is a chance the limits could be consumed by the time you need them.

Lockton Affinity Advisor’s E&O policy has individual limits, so you will always have access to your full policy limits.

CYBER LIABILITY

Through Lockton Affinity Advisor, you can add cyber liability to your E&O policy. Together, these policies address many of the deficiencies found within the online marketplace. Currently, many providers offer insurance with a low price point. Unfortunately this often means poor coverage, hidden fees and no available cyber coverage.

In the event of a cyber incident, financial exposures can exceed $250 per record. With Lockton Affinity Advisor’s Cyber Liability Insurance, you no longer carry the risk of these costs.
