As a financial planner, you’ve put in the hours and dedication to take your craft to the next level of professionalism and have earned the CFP designation. You’re a master at numbers and strategizing best practices for saving toward a big goal, whether that’s a vacation, retirement, or college fund. You know when to spend, when to save, and how to make realistic goals.
However, you may not know much about small business insurance policies.
Fortunately, you don’t need to — let Simply Business build an insurance policy that’s personalized just for you.
Professional Liability insurance — which is also referred to as errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance) — is a type of policy that provides coverage in the event a client alleges negligence resulting from your professional services. If your client decides to sue your business for errors related to your services and advice, your professional liability insurance policy may cover damages and legal costs that you might be ordered to pay due to negligence.
For example, say your client is asking you to help them plan to save up for their son’s college tuition. You do all the work and give them your advice, but the client alleges you were negligent while delivering your services with false information or misguidance. You could receive a claim for alleged negligence, but professional liability may help cover the legal costs to that claim.
General liability insurance — also known as commercial general liability (CGL) — protects your business from third-party claims of bodily injury or damage to someone else’s property.
If you have an office where clients come to visit, there’s always a risk that they may accidentally injure themselves on site. That could be as simple as their tripping on a rug and hitting their head, requiring a trip to the hospital. General liability insurance may help cover some of the medical bills for that injured individual. Also, if you are visiting a client on their property and you happen to accidentally knock over an expensive chair and break a table in the process, general liability insurance may help cover the repair costs to their property.
