Specialist Insurance for Planning Consultants

The Preferred Partner

We are the Royal Town Planning Institute's preferred broker in respect of their members Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII). We provide risk management advice and PII broking services to clients ranging from sole traders through to the large multi-office firms.

As a Planning Consultant, you provide your clients with professional advice. Your clients trust you to get it right but, no matter how well organised you are, accidents do happen. If a client thinks that your advice has been negligent and has caused financial loss or damage to their reputation, then they could claim for compensation. You can cover your business against such claims by ensuring you have a good insurance policy, and that’s where we come in.

We make it easy too. We have a dedicated team supporting SME practices, providing a quick, simple and efficient service, so that buying the right insurance doesn’t get in the way of the day job.
