Commercial Insurance

Partnered with PIB Insurance Broker, a UK leading specialist in commercial business insurance tailored to help reduce the level of risk for your business through public liability, employers liability or professional indemnity insurance.

What is Commercial Insurance?

Commercial insurance helps businesses identify and protect against risks to their bottom line, enabling them to grow and thrive. Our partners PIB insurance brokers can also help with protecting your business with insurance such as key person, personal guarantee and medical.

Insurance provides cover against standard commercial risks like property, vehicle and fleet, professional liability and travel.

It doesn’t matter what type of business you are either, as we can help those that are sole traders or SMEs, through to the larger corporate companies.

Regardless of the type, size or location of your business, commercial insurance offers invaluable protection against unforeseen circumstances which may cause financial loss, injury or damages.

There are different types of insurance which cover businesses, including public liability insurance, employers’ liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance. These policies can protect against claims made by your clients, employees and members of the public.

Commercial insurance can also prove the credibility of your business and show clients that you are trustworthy.

MAF Finance Group’s commercial insurance products are arranged and administered by PIB insurance brokers who will help you get the right cover for your business.

Types of commercial insurance?

Public liability insurance – This covers the cost of compensation claims and legal fees if a third party is injured, or if their property or possessions are damaged, because of your business.

Employers’ liability insurance – This is a legal requirement for businesses employing personnel. This mandatory cover can protect you from the cost of compensation claims if your employees are injured or ill as a result of working for you.

Professional indemnity insurance – If you offer professional advice or service, professional indemnity insurance protects you against financial loss if a client takes legal action against you for the inaccurate or inadequate advice and work you provided.
