Trustee indemnity/liability insurance from Markel Direct UK



Trustee indemnity insurance | Trustee liability insurance

As one of the pioneers of trustee liability insurance (also known as trustee indemnity insurance), we have many years knowledge of the risks facing the management of charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Regardless of how well intending your decisions as a trustee may be, claims or allegations of negligence could be made against you during (or after) your time as a charity trustee. Such allegations could cost thousands of pounds in legal fees, expenses and compensation – and without trustees insurance, you may be liable to pay them out of your own pocket.

Our specialist trustee indemnity insurance can cover your legal fees, expenses and any damages awarded against you following an allegation of negligence – giving you the peace of mind that your personal wealth won’t be at risk if a claim is brought against you.

Arranging the right trustee indemnity insurance is vital, and without speaking to a specialist it can be a complicated process. We have insurance experts at the other end of the phone who can answer any questions you have about trustee insurance and explain what it can cover in plain English – get a quote now or call us today!
