PROFESSIONAL & FINANCIAL SERVICES
Architects, Engineers, and Geoscientists Insurance
With over 25 years of direct expertise, Axis Insurance representatives are experts in Professional Liability Insurance. They are dedicated to supporting the insurance requirements of many professional service organizations including Architects, Engineers, and Geoscientists Insurance.
Operating your business is a difficult yet rewarding job, which is why it’s important to protect your hard work and long hours from legal claims arising out of your professional services. Professional liability coverage protects you and your business from claims that your typical general liability won’t cover.
Referred to as the “products liability” of the Services sector, professional liability coverage protects against liability and helps mitigate the cost of defence following a claim for an error, omission or negligence in the performance of professional services.

Life Agents Insurance
Every life agent works hard to deliver the very best to its clients. We all try to build a positive reputation and ensure our work keeps our clients returning. However, should something go wrong, your clients can turn to legal action to correct those mistakes, or seek compensation for them.
Whatever services you offer – whether it is life insurance or investment advice you are at risk of litigation, if you or your employees make a mistake, or your services fall below your clients’ expectations there may be legal repercussions. Such errors can cause financial and reputational losses for you and your company. Life agents insurance is a first line of defence against those risks.
Even if allegations are groundless, frivolous, or malicious, there can be a long and expensive litigation process to follow which may or may not lead to a settlement or judgment.
Errors and Omissions Insurance is a requirement of your license and your sponsor organization. Axis Insurance provides a broad insurance policy with competitive premiums.
