Helping to protect your business
Our professional indemnity (PI) cover helps to protect your business from potential financial catastrophe, so you can work worry free.
What are the benefits for managing agents?
The policy is specific to the work carried out by managing agents.
For example, managing agents may not conduct surveys themselves, and yet some PI policies automatically charge for this in the cover.
At Gallagher, we believe companies should not pay for cover they don’t need. Although if required, surveys can be included as an additional option.
We offer a range of cover options from our well-known panel of providers.

If you own the building your office is located in, we offer cover for standard risks, such as storms, floods and fire, as well as accidental damage.
