What is professional liability insurance?
A financial services provider could be sued for causing financial loss to a third party as a result of their professional advice or service. Professional liability insurance can help cover legal expenses (like defence costs, judgement awards and settlements) in this scenario.
Here are some examples:
- A client accuses you of making a mistake, costing them thousands of dollars. They sue you to recoup this money.
- You lost an important document, causing a client to miss out on an application for funding. They sue you for this missed opportunity.
- Whether or not the accusations are true, you will need to defend yourself legally. Professional liability insurance can help financial service providers in Saskatoon cover these costs.
How much does professional liability cost for financial service providers in Saskatoon?
Professional liability insurance might start at $440 per year for basic coverage for financial services in Saskatoon. Your annual revenue, business operations, insurance options, number of employees and where you operate will impact your rates.

What other coverages does EasyCover offer Saskatoon finance professionals?
We offer three other coverage options in addition to professional liability insurance.
Commercial General Liability
Also known as CGL insurance, this coverage helps cover costs if a third party is injured or has their property damaged by you or an employee as a result of negligence. A common example is if someone visits your office, slips, falls and hurts themselves.
In the financial industry, you handle sensitive information and could be a prime target for a cyber-attack or have drastic consequences if there’s a data breach. Cyber liability helps cover costs if this happens, including legal expenses, fines, public relations and more (up to your policy limit).
Directors and Officers Liability
If you’re held personally liable for breaching your duties as a director or officer, this coverage can help protect your personal assets. It can help with legal expenses such as defence costs, judgement awards and settlements.
Do financial service providers really need professional liability insurance in Saskatoon?
