Fintech insurance FAQs

Can a fintech insurance policy be adjusted during the policy period?

Yes, we understand that running an innovative business means clients will require a flexible policy to meet the evolving risks your business faces as you grow. As such, your policy can be adjusted where necessary during its lifetime.

We are not a regulated entity, why do I need fintech insurance?

Tailored fintech insurance does not just protect your business from regulatory exposures. Typically, fintech insurance is a packaged product consisting of professional indemnity, directors and officers liability, cyber and crime insurance, covering your fintech business from an extensive range of risks.

We are a start-up with a small client base, is fintech insurance meant to be for larger businesses?

As the majority of businesses utilise the digital space, it’s more important than ever to be aware of the risks your small business could face online. Crime can impact businesses in a number of ways, and a cyber-related attack could have the potential to cause not just just financial, but reputational harm to a small business. These attacks are not reserved for large corporations, as cyber attacks on small businesses can also prove damaging and costly.

Can fintech insurance cover my business for theft of funds?

Many fintech companies will be dealing with a high amount of funds movement, particularly in payments. Innovative technologies may lead to your business being targeted for the theft of these funds. A fintech insurance policy could provide cover for funds lost if the theft was by either an employee or third party.

What information do I need to provide to get a quote for fintech insurance?

This depends slightly on what solution your fintech business is providing. All clients are asked to complete a short application form, which will collate key risk details for the underwriter to review as they prepare your quote. Depending on whether you have been trading in the last 12 months, you may be asked to provide financials, or if you are a newly incorporated entity, some insurers may ask for a copy of your business plan.

What does fintech insurance cover me for?

A well tailored fintech policy will blend together a wide range of essential insurance lines into a single comprehensive solution. Fintech packages can include professional liability (sometimes referred to as professional indemnity or PI), covering both sides of tech and financial liability, directors and officers liability, crime and cyber insurance.

Can I extend my fintech cover to include the US?

In short, yes! At Superscript, we know that the US is a huge market for a number of fintech businesses. We aim to be able to secure you a quote to cover entities domiciled in the US as well as your activities within US jurisdiction.
