Overview

Contractual Obligations

As a consequence of globalisation, professional service providers in Southeast Asia & China are increasingly finding professional liability insurance as one of the pre-requisite requirements when tendering for business with overseas companies, especially where contracts are awarded by clients based in the US, Europe, UK and Australasia. This is driven by the litigious environment that exists in such territories.

Financial Protection

A single claim can ruin a business financially since litigation can be expensive, time-consuming and resource-consuming. AIG's Professional Liability insurance will provide protection for you when faced with such claims.

Reputation Protection

If you are a professional, your reputation is everything and maintaining this reputation is critical. If a claim does arise, our claims experts will provide assistance in the management of a positive relationship between you and your client so as to mitigate the damage to your reputation.

Customer Protection

AIG’s Professional Liability insurance aims to remove the financial burden for the service provider. This helps to minimise the fear of economic loss and provides peace of mind which enables the professional to focus on what’s important–servicing their client.

Litigation Environment

The increasing economic interdependency and culture exchange between the West and the East is contributing to higher claims awareness among professionals like yourself. The rapidly escalating number and size of professional liability claims demonstrate the litigious environment in Southeast Asia and China.
