Tailored Insurance for Business Coaches

Whatever your business coach approach might be, you will be providing high quality advice to entrepreneurs and business owners, by analysing situations and educating clients with regards to their business goals, market strategy and cash management, so they can make better informed decisions.

Carelessness or negligence while performing your business coach duties might lead to serious financial implications. Our Professional Liability cover protects professionals like you from claims by dissatisfied clients, offering a financial safeguard from litigation. Even if business coaching is considered as low risk, you still need to protect yourself and your business.

Professional Indemnity, also included in our policy, provides cover for malpractice, breach of duty, professional misconduct, professional negligence, and mistakes or omissions claims made against you. A well-chosen policy will also reimburse your legal defence costs.

All our Business Coach policies come with Public Liability, with options to add up to £5 million. This could protect you from a claim should someone you are coaching, or a member of the public get injured. So, whether you are set up as a sole trader, partnership or limited company, we can offer cover that meets your needs.
