New York, NY, Nov. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hiscox, the international specialist insurer, today announced the launch of a new suite of offerings that will provide customized professional and management liability coverage to financial services firms across the US. The new platform, Hiscox FS™, is an expansion of Hiscox’s current offering to financial services firms.
Hiscox FS provides financial services firms, such as asset managers and non-bank lenders, with coverage for various aspects of their businesses through a streamlined platform. Through a single, customizable policy, Hiscox FS will empower firms with the option to add additional protection against exposures beyond traditional insurance products for financial service businesses, such as technology professional liability, cyber privacy, miscellaneous professional liability and more.
“Today’s financial services professionals do not stay in their lane – they innovate, disrupt and operate in a number of different segments on behalf of their clients,” said Sean Hearden, Vice President and Financial Services Product Head at Hiscox USA. “For these types of businesses, such as fintech and diversified real estate firms, the challenge has traditionally been finding the coverage that addresses all aspects of their business operations, rather than just a part of it. Our mission when developing Hiscox FS was to give our clients the flexibility to find a single policy and platform that supports innovation and growth.”
Hiscox USA provides a variety of specialty risk solutions, including a broad spectrum of professional errors and omissions, general liability, cyber and data security, media liability, management liability, crime, kidnap and ransom, terrorism and commercial property insurance products.
In the US, Hiscox has offices in New York, NY; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA and White Plains, NY.
