    • PIB 6.12.2 Guidance

      1. In complying with PIB Rule 6.12.2, an Authorised FirmG should take out and maintain a contract for professional indemnity insurance (PII) from a reputable and well-capitalised insurer and such contract should include cover in respect of claims for which the Authorised FirmG may be liable as a result of the conduct of itself and its EmployeesG and appropriate cover in respect of legal costs arising from a claim.
      2. Pursuant to PIB Rule 6.4.1(c), an Authorised FirmG should notify the DFSAG of any significant PII claim made. What amounts to a significant claim will depend on the nature size and complexity of the Authorised FirmG and the DFSAG would expect the Authorised FirmG to treat a series of small single claims which are significant in aggregate as significant for the purposes of PIB Rule 6.4.1(c).
      3. An Authorised FirmG can fulfil the requirements under this section by ensuring coverage of its activities under a group-wide PII policy, provided that policy covers the Authorised FirmG and its activities and that policy meets the conditions specified in this section. Where the Authorised Firm'sG group PII cover does not meet the requirements specified under this section, the Authorised FirmG will be required to obtain PII cover that meets those requirements.
