What cover does my business need?

Depending on your business's circumstances, you'll likely want to consider a combination of the following covers:

  • Professional indemnity and technology liability, errors and omissions insurance
  • General, public and employers liability insurance
  • Intellectual property insurance for patents, trademarks and copyright
  • Key person insurance
  • Directors’ and officers’ insurance – for private and public companies)
  • Cyber insurance – first and third party cyber insurance, including ransomware and data breaches
  • Commercial combined insurance – including office and WFH contents
  • Crime cover – including theft and employee fidelity
  • Personal accident and travel cover.

What if my business has more complex insurance needs?

Our expert brokers are well versed in the insurance needs of complex tech-driven companies and we have a wide range of products available to support specialist companies. For example:

  • aiSure: a performance guarantee for businesses selling AI solutions
  • PSD2: cover you against breach of PSD2 regulations
  • Liability and Cyber: built especially for crypto companies
  • Crypto mining: property cover for crypto miners.

For the most part, no. However, employers' liability insurance is a legal requirement for most business with employees, whether full-time, part-time, temporary or unpaid.

Employers’ liability insurance is designed to cover legal and compensation costs if an employee suffers a work-related accidental bodily injury, illness, disease or even death on the job.

You likely find yourself on this page becuase Fuel Ventures requires you to hold key person insurance and directors' and officers' insurance before committing to investment.
