Professional Services

The Canadian professional services sector – which encompasses a wide range of firms that provide specialist advice and services to other companies – represents a significant proportion of Canada’s GDP and remains one of the steadiest growing sectors of all.

However, the disparate nature of the sector means that professional services firms have widely differing priorities and challenges, so they need tailored support from an insurer that understands their particular circumstances.

Why QBE?

QBE has been helping professional services firms to identify and transfer their risks for more than 40 years. Our experience spans a range of occupations, including lawyers, engineers and architects. We also have specialist underwriters who understand the professional risks inherent in sectors such as construction, technology, media, telecommunications and management consulting.

With the ability to insure those employing a handful of employees all the way up to leading international organizations, we can provide solutions that are tailored to your needs.

Perhaps the most crucial coverage for any professional services firm is Professional Liability insurance, which protects you against claims and defence costs arising from any alleged failure to provide advice, services or designs.

Should you need to make a claim, our Claims team is committed to reaching a fair settlement as quickly as possible to minimize any disruption to your business.

Finally, under our unique QBE Premiums4Good initiative, you can make a difference by choosing to put up to 100% of your premium into investments with an additional social objective, such as reducing homelessness or helping the environment. We provide annual updates about the projects we have supported, which you are welcome to use in your own corporate social responsibility reporting.
