Professional Indemnity insurance for IPI members

The newly revised, 2014 Edition covers all the practical and legal knowledge required to obtain the IQ Limited “Level 3 Award in Investigations”, the minimum standard of qualification accepted by the SIA for issue of its Private Investigators licence, which is expected to be a legal requirement by the end of 2015 – and much more.

The Institution of Professional Investigators (IPI) has developed in partnership with insurance broker Kerry London Ltd a discounted Professional Indemnity solution exclusively for IPI members.

The scheme covers a broad range of activities undertaken such as Fraud, Process serving, Security enquiries, Road traffic collision, Tracing, Precognition, Commercial Crime, Matrimonial enquiries, Crime prevention and reduction, Public authorities & Debt recovery services .

Unlike many of the products on the market place, the IPI wording offers members comprehensive coverage including:

  • Insurance limits arranged on each and every claim basis
  • Costs incurred for prosecuting Infringement of Intellectual Property rights
  • Data Protection infringements
  • Costs to defend libel slander and defamation
  • Irrecoverable fees/dispute over quality of work Further explanation on the significance of these and why they matter to you can be found on the Professional Indemnity for Private Investigators. It is important that when comparing policies that members understand fully the cover being obtained. In addition to the cover areas, the IPI policy also offers
  • Underwritten by ‘A’ rated insurer HCC
  • Dedicated claims service
  • Discounts available for IPI members from standard rates – full details will be provided at quote stage
  • Simple access
  • Packaged insurances (e.g Public Liability, Employers Liability, Directors and Officers, Office)
