A new team to meet advisers' professional indemnity(PI) needs has been launched by Liberty International Underwriters Europe (LIU Europe), a division of Liberty Mutual Group.
Liberty's newly-formed team will report into Alan Telford, head of PI for Europe and the business will initially be written out of London for UK-based clients.
"The current financial climate has made this a particularly challenging and vulnerable time for independent financial advisers," says Telford.
"As a result, it is imperative that firms have their professional indemnity cover with a company that fully understands their insurance needs."
The IFA team will work alongside LIU Europe's existing professional indemnity team, which writes business for a wide range of professions in London and throughout the UK.IFAonline
