PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY (P.I.) INSURANCE Benson Insurance Brokers Ltd have a current P.I policy in force, which protects its clients in the very unlikely event of a mistake occurring, which causes an avoidable loss.

The limit of Indemnity on the current policy is $10 million, which is many times the current level required by I.B.A.N.Z rules, and is more than sufficient to allow for the majority of events, which could possibly happen.

He has worked as both a Lawyer, and an Accountant, both in public practice. His knowledge and experience of practical business issues comes not only from this significant background, but also as a business owner himself.
