Errors & Omissions
More than just E&O insurance, we offer a full suite of corporate liability insurance solutions to protect all aspects of your business.
Provincial regulators are now mandating separate and distinct corporate E&O coverage for financial advisor agencies regardless of what personal coverage an advisor might hold. Regulators have determined that the vicarious liability extensions of an advisor’s personal coverage is insufficient to fully comply with regulators consumer protection expectations. It is important for advisors to not only consider regulatory requirements but also what will fully protect their incorporated entity.
Personal Corporate Coverage
Your agent’s E&O insurance was intended to protect you from any legal action that might be brought against you. Under Common Law and the Civil Code (Quebec), professionals are held to a higher standard by virtue of their accreditation and training.
If you have set up a corporation under which you conduct your business, this firm could also be named in any action against you. If you have licensed agents other than yourself working in your firm (including licensed administrative assistants), your firm’s exposure to claims risk is higher. More clients also means greater exposure.
In certain circumstances, the E&O coverage you carry can be extended to cover your corporation. Learn more…
