Why the Stockbroker needs Professional Liability Insurance

If you are a stockbroker, you are the go-between for clients who wish to buy and sell stocks and other types of securities.

Like other professionals, you need various forms of insurance coverage to protect you from common commercial exposures.

Among other insurance coverage, this can include:

  • General Liability

  • Cyber Liability

  • Workers Comp


For anyone in the finance or accounting industries, like the stockbroker, there is another extremely important type of coverage, called Errors and Omissions.

Errors and Omissions Coverage for the Stockbroker

Errors and Omissions Stockbroker Insurance is also known as Professional Liability Insurance and can protect you from claims associated with errors or mistakes, including acts of negligence, careless, behind schedule, poor or uncompleted service.

Along with loss of commercial revenue, oversights can be the catalyst to ruining your business standing and good name.
