It's vital Fintech businesses seek specialist insurance advice and protection. The promise of Fintech is plain to see - but working in this new environment exposes you to new types of risk. Heavy reliance on data, technology and infrastructure, changes in regulatory structures (including PSD2) and the shadowy threat of cyber risks heap unpredictability and uncertainty on any new entrant to this space.

The advent of Fintech has disrupted archaic markets, flustered regulators and created a brave new world of risk for its participants. From smart wallets and financial software to next-generation algorithms, we’ve got you covered. Whatever region of the Fintech universe you occupy, let us help you bullet-proof your business to control risk, build confidence and enhance your investor attraction.

What if…?

  • Your technology fails, leaving customers up in arms?
  • Your network gets hacked, compromising users’ data?
  • The regulator kicks off an investigation into your activities?
  • cyber attack hits your revenues?
  • A hacker tries to extort money from you by threatening a denial of service attack?
  • Your C-suite faces legal action from disgruntled shareholders or investors?

  10. Advice on how best to manage your risks - to keep you safe but also to keep insurance costs down
