General insurance facilities for Thistle Initiatives firms

Why Hiscox?

We have chosen to partner with Hiscox and to recommend them to Thistle firms because we believe they offer quality products at competitive rates, backed by a customer-centric claims settlement philosophy.

They’ve also recently spent time and effort to develop the services they offer to brokers including:

  • • Faster, accurate new business quotes and documentation
    • Local development underwriters writing new and existing business and supporting brokers to grow their business
    • New and updated covers which will run on a continuing cover basis, ensuring clients are updated with the latest wording at each renewal.

Hiscox values the commitments Thistle firms show to trading compliantly and reward this commitment with a very low annual trading target. Hiscox is also known for supporting brokers to develop schemes which offer benefits both to the client and to the business.

If you don’t already have a Hiscox agency as part of your Thistle Initiatives services you could be missing out.

Products available include:

Professional Indemnity – Hiscox has built a leading reputation in the provision of professional indemnity protection for a wide range of professions. Their experienced claims handlers understand how to protect a client’s business and settle disputes quickly and efficiently.

Management Liability – Unlike other standard policies, the Hiscox management liability portfolio will not restrict your client to a single limit of indemnity but covers the company as well as individuals; the policy also automatically responds to changes in your client’s company whether through growth or acquisitions.

Media and Creative Industries – Hiscox has over 20 years’ experience in insuring businesses in the media and creative sectors. Its portfolio of insured businesses range from one-man graphic designers and cameramen to mid-size event companies and PR firms to major film studios, global advertising agencies, and national news organisations!

Venues – Hiscox cover includes buildings, contents, equipment breakdown, marquees, defective title, business interruption and public liability for a broad range of different venues.

Event insurance – Designed for clients running commercial events such as exhibitions, conferences, product launches and award dinners. Covering, bodily injury and property damage cover, work performed by subcontractors, breach of contract, rectification costs, payments towards outstanding fees, intellectual property and breach of privacy/confidentiality.

High Net Worth Household – The Hiscox 606 policy is a premium home insurance product specifically designed for the owners of high value homes and belongings. It meets the needs of individuals with specialist or complex needs such as high value items, art or collections or listed buildings.

Motor – Hiscox Motor Insurance and Hiscox Classic Motor Insurance have been designed for owners of higher-value cars. Cover includes repairs by the garage of the policyholder’s choice, an agreed value for the car in the event of it being written off and European breakdown assistance.

Cyber and Data Insurance – We’ve recently added Cyber and Data Insurance to the range of covers available through your Thistle Hiscox agency.
The Hiscox Cyber and Data Insurance offers businesses comprehensive protection for their computer systems and data, all available in a single insurance policy. With the number of recent cyber-attacks making headlines, this is an area of growing focus.

Hiscox has been providing cyber and data insurance for 14 years, so they understand the changing risks that your clients face. The product they offer is straightforward yet provides comprehensive cover so your clients know what they’re buying and can be confident that Hiscox will actively help them to put things right in the event of a loss.
