Professional Indemnity and Liability Insurance in Hong Kong


CCW Global is able to provide comprehensive Professional Indemnity and Liability Insurance coverage in Hong Kong, with the availability of specific policies designed for a range of specialist professions.

Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII Cover), otherwise known as Professional Liability Insurance (PLI Cover), or Errors and Omissions Insurance, is a type of Hong Kong Business Insurance policy which is designed to protect professional workers in advice-giving service industries against the full costs of defence in the event of a negligence claim regarding their services.

A number of professions will normally obtain professional indemnity insurance as a matter of their routine operations, and can actually have the implementation of a Professional Indemnity policy included as a contractual obiligation on the part of their customers. For example, for a doctor or other medical professional a Professional Indemnity insurance policy is commonly known as Malpractice Insurance (or Medical Malpractice Insurance). Professions normally purchasing this type of Hong Kong business insurance policy include:

  • Medical Professionals (Doctors, Nurses, Psychiatrists, etc.)
  • Lawyers and Solicitors
  • Insurance Brokers
  • Accountants
  • Educational Professionals (Teachers, Headmasters, etc.)
  • Financial Services Professionals (Financial Advisors, Asset Management Agents, etc.)
  • Construction Professionals (Architects, Engineers, Surveyors, etc.)
  • Media, Telecommunications and Technology Professionals
  • Management Consultants

In some cases a range of additional industries and professions may require PIL coverage while operating in Hong Kong. CCW can provide suitable solutions to these groups which are custom tailored to meet their specific requirements.

What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

In Insurance a general Public Liability insurance policy will normally protect individuals and businesses against their liability to the general public for the costs involved with an accident which results in actual bodily harm. Additionally, an employer’s liability to their workers will generally be covered under an Employee Compensation insurance plan. However, there are a number of risks encountered in the business world which are not covered under either of these two business insurance plans.

This demands the availability of a specialized form of Business indemnity insurance which has been designed to protect against risks which result in claims that are unrelated to bodily injury.

To understand how Professional Indemnity Insurance works we can look at the following examples:

Example 1: Construction Indemnity Insurance

A construction company builds an apartment block for a client. However, shortly after completion a number of major errors are found which leave the building unsuitable for habitation. This requires the demolition of the building, and the consequent reconstruction to rectify the problems. No one is hurt, but the client of the company suffers a severe financial loss and files a claim for compensation against the construction firm.

In this case a Professional Indemnity Insurance policy would normally provide coverage for the costs of the legal defence, and  the liability of the construction company towards their customer's financial loss.

Example 2: Financial Services Indemnity Insurance

A customer contracts an Accounting firm to advise on a Tax problem. The accountant provides advice which later turns out to be incorrect, leading to the customer paying a large fine from the Revenue service. This results in the customer filing a claim for compensation against the Accounting firm for the losses incurred.

A Professional Indemnity Insurance policy would normally cover the costs associated with  the legal defence of the Accounting firm and the firm’s liability towards the customer’s loss resulting from the faulty information.
