Individual’s Regulatory Defence Insurance


What is Individual Regulatory Defence Insurance

This policy was relaunched MID October 2022 and offers a regulated individual the ability to defend themselves if and when an investigation by the Financial Conduct Authority is notified.  This policy funds the legal defence cost of such an investigation up to chosen limit of £100,000 or £500,000.

The advantages of the individual regulatory defence policy are as follow:

  • It is in the name of the Insured individual, or their estate, and cannot be eroded by any other person or company.
  • It enjoys a much smaller deductible than that imposed on the standard PI and D&O insurance policies.
  • It sits outside the “asset pool” of the company.
  • Premiums are payable by the employer and not deemed to be a “benefit in kind” for tax purposes.
  • It avoids the politically difficult position as to whether the Employer’s defence should be fund by the employer, even when such defence may be contrary to the Employer’s own interests.
  • It responds to any investigation rather than relying on the need for compensation being sought!
  • Its purpose is to fund the defence of the individual and not be beholden to the resulting liability of the company or its insurers.
  • The lawyers appointed do not have a conflict of interest and only represent the insured person and not their employers or insurers.
  • The company can purchase this policy for all or some of their regulated staff with resulting discounts.
