Why do I need reputation risk insurance?

In a fast changing world, even the best thought out decision may expose your business (and your personal brand) to increased scrutiny. Add in social media, shareholder scrutiny and increasingly complex regulatory and governance requirements and it's easy to understand how one wrong move could lead to a significant impact on your bottom line. Reputation risk insurance solutions provide a safety net to mitigate the effects of an event that could otherwise damage your standing in the market, and with customers.

Digital transformation has brought with it many positive social and economic benefits. At the same time brands are being challenged by the expectation of transparency, further fuelled by social media and online conversation that can positively or engatively impact brand reputation and value within a matter of minutes.

What are business reputational risk threats?

Several business elements can leave your company exposed to the threat of reputational risk:

  • check
    Financial irregularities or misconduct
  • check
    Environmental concerns
  • check
    Data and security breaches, including cyber attacks
  • check
    Legal investigations
  • check
    Regulatory breach
  • check
    Professional malpractice
  • check
    Executive misconduct
  • check
    Ethical violations and challenges
  • check
    Associations with external third parties that bring your brand into disrepute

Political risk insurance

Small world, big risks.

Political risk is also becoming a growing concern for many businesses, especially where that places you at increased risk of a regulatory breach. Staying on top of the detail whilst fully understanding your position can be challenging, that's where a specialist insurance advisor comes in.
