An exempt CAD firm that has professional indemnity insurance in accordance with this chapter must take out and maintain professional indemnity insurance that is at least equal to the requirements of the rule below from:
The policy of professional indemnity insurance must incorporate terms which make provision for:
cover in respect of claims for which an exempt CAD firm may be liable as a result of the conduct of itself, its employees and its appointed representatives or where applicable, its tied agent (acting within the scope of their appointment);
the minimum levels of indemnity per year as set out in the rules relating to professional indemnity insurance above;
appropriate cover in respect of legal defence costs; and
If a professional indemnity insurance policy is denominated in any currency other than euros, an exempt CAD firm must take reasonable FCA steps to ensure that the limits of indemnity are, when the policy is effected and at renewal, at least equivalent to those required for the purposes of the rules relating to professional indemnity insurance above.
A professional indemnity insurance policy must not be subject to conditions or exclusions which unreasonably limit the cover provided (whether by exclusion of cover, by policy excesses or otherwise).
