institute of mercantile agents

Gallagher has been the endorsed insurance broker of the Institute of Mercantile Agents (IMA) since 2009. We have worked closely with the institute to understand the diverse range of activities undertaken by its members. As a result, our insurance solutions for IMA members have been specifically tailored for the needs of your profession.

The right insurance for Institute of Mercantile Agents members

Gallagher provides Professional Indemnity (PI) and Public Liability (PL) insurance, specifically tailored for the needs of IMA members. Our highly competitive, tailored risk management and insurance solutions cover a diverse range of activities undertaken in the industry, and can provide cover for all IMA members, including debt collectors, investigators, process services and many others.

Our PI insurance covers you for the financial consequences of any mistakes you, or your staff, may make in providing professional advice. It also protects against allegations of professional misconduct or negligence to help safeguard your personal and business reputation.

PL insurance, meanwhile, covers you for any injuries to third persons that might occur on your premises, through negligence or accidental means.

Apply for your combined PI/PL insurance through Gallagher via the 'Downloads' tab above and email to us directly. We'll get back to you with a quote as soon as possible.

Our policies come at extremely competitive rates and are exclusively available to members of the Institute of Mercantile Agents. Visit the IMA website to become a member today.
