Edison Ives

At Edison Ives we love working with like minded businesses that are independent, proud and unique. We’re not a call centre and we’re not an old-fashioned insurance broker. We sit in the middle… on our own.  We have embraced technology and streamlined our processes, to ensure you receive a great price, for the right cover.

Your Insurance Advisor

At Edison Ives we offer straight forward, honest advice and a different, better service that places you at the centre of our business.

We don't transfer you. We don't read from scripts. We don't direct you to our website. Instead, we will help you there and then or get back to you promptly. We will always be polite and professional.

Simple really.

A Great Price

We all  want the best price possible. But, a cheap quote that doesn’t cover you correctly could be the most expensive policy you ever purchase. At Edison Ives we will always try to get you the best price. We do this by trading hard (which we love), understanding your business, and negotiating with the right markets.

In addition we can work with you to help reduce your insurance premium. We can identify factors that are increasing your premium. If these factors can be mitigated we will assist. If not then we will be able to advise you so that you can budget accordingly for future years.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability Insurance protects your business, if it is alleged you have provided incorrect advice, services or designs, that has caused your client to incur a financial loss. It provides cover for legal costs, defence expenses, as well as compensation payable to rectify mistakes and errors.

We can offer Professional Liability Insurance from as little as £12 per month. We provide industry specific coverage and can tailor the cover to your needs. One of our friendly team can run through the question set in 10 to 30 minutes dependent on complexity. In addition, we can add optional modules to your cover i.e. employers liability, if you require a complete business package.

For this class of business, and all our commercial insurance solutions, we have an instalment facility meaning you can pay over 6 or 10 instalments if required. We can cater for all your indemnity requirements and can provide cover from £25,000 up to £20,000,000.

Do you really need this cover?

According to AXA three quarters of business owners worry about making mistakes on client projects, and one quarter worry that one of their clients will make a compensation claim against them, related to their professional services. But despite these statistics more than half of businesses that offer advice fail to buy Professional Liability Insurance. Make sure you are in the right half.

If you answer Yes to any of the below - You need Professional Liability Insurance?

• Do you provide advice or consultancy?
• Do you provide an expert service?
• Do you handle people’s information?
• Does one of your client insists you have it?
• Does the main contractor require you have it?
• Does your professional body require that you have it?

Typical examples of Professional Liability Insurance claims?

• IT consultant loses data
• An accountancy firms makes an error on a tax return
• A personal trainer gives poor advise and causes injury
• A marketing agency infringes copyright
• A contractor makes changes to an architects plans and causes delays

If you are not sure if you need this cover, or require any further information, please Contact Us and we are happy to help.

Cyber liability and crime

Edison Ives – The Cyber Threat to Small Business

Larger organisations dominate the press but SMEs are increasingly becoming the target of sophisticated cyber criminals. According to data compiled by the insurance company Zurich, 875,000 SMEs across the UK have already been affected by a cyber-attack over the last 12 months, with an average cost of a cyber attack costing £10,000.

A cyber incident doesn’t only lead to theft of money, data, or goods, it can also lead to an interruption to you business and reputational damage to your company. But despite the losses, many SMEs still aren’t investing in cyber protection or in insurance policies that will help if an attack should happen.

Our Clients Rate Us

Solved the problem at a good price

I had a lot of problems trying to insure my rental new build flat, these guys were very courteous and solved the problem for me at a good price.

Sam W Property Owner
Absolutely Five Star!

I found Edison Ives while searching for home insurance which would provide cover for a house which shares the property with a home-based boarding kennel business. Tony was able to find me a very competitive package, and walked me through the whole process step by step. Tony could not have done more to help me, and for a new-start business his help and advice was invaluable. Absolutely Five Star!

Sarah Grint Boarding Kennel Owner
Exceptional Service

Customer service exceptional. Thanks to Edison Ives we got a competitive price for our block of flats insurance. Following that we had a claim and Ged helped us with this from start to finish. I would highly recommend.

Bridget McKinnon Property Owner
Really very helpful

Really very helpful. After having a claim in 2016, our premiums were extremely high. Edison Ives have found us a higher policy at a cheaper rate that our previous insurers.

Anonymous Fish & Chip Shop Owner
Who knew insurance could be fun?!

Ged gave me comprehensive advice in simple English and I now feel reassured that I have the right cover at the right price. He understands me and my business and is a joy to deal with. Who knew insurance could be fun?!

Ellan Campbell-Swann Owner - PR and Events Agency
Easy to deal with and professional

Very easy to deal with and very professional. So much better than dealing with the massive impersonal call centres, and Edison Ives still came back with a better premium. As with all insurance, it's not the buying but the claims process that's important. I get the feeling that should a claim be necessary they will do everything possible to support.

T.J. Property Owner - Residents Association Chair
