NEW YORK, June 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hiscox, the international specialist insurer, today announced additional industries covered by its Hiscox Pro™ portfolio. The new products offer 'tailor made' policy forms for businesses in the security services, associations, staffing services and analytical testing labs industries.
The latest enhancements are part of a broader strategy to offer new E &O solutions that address emerging risks across specific industries. Hiscox Pro currently offers consultants, trustees, real estate & property managers, and many other service professionals affordable and specialized insurance coverage for the specific risks stemming from the services they provide.
"Traditional professions, such as accountants, lawyers, doctors, or architects and engineers, are generally aware of their exposures and appreciate the benefits of liability insurance," said David Egosi, a National Underwriting Leader at Hiscox USA. "Emerging industries are also best served by having protection that is tailored specifically to their needs and adapted to the exposures they face."
Brokers will now be able to offer 'tailor-made' coverage to an even greater share of their client base through industry specific forms available in the Hiscox Pro portfolio.
In the US, Hiscox offers professional liability insurance alongside a diverse portfolio of other commercial and specialty insurance products, and has offices in New York, NY; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA and White Plains, NY.
