Hiscox, a Bermuda-based specialist insurer, has signed an agreement with a Web-based business insurance broker Business Insurance Now to meet the needs of their small professional services customers.

Customers of Business Insurance Now can access professional liability insurance quotes from Hiscox, tailored to the specific needs of their business.

The new professional liability insurance coverage is designed specifically for the small business and home-office markets for a range of knowledge-based professions including public relations, human resources, management consulting, business consulting and marketing.

The insurer said that the partnership with Business Insurance Now is an extension of its direct business, which offers professional liability insurance quotes direct and online in real-time along with other liability insurance products such as general liability insurance.

Business Insurance Now CEO Darren Beck said Hiscox’s targeted underwriting approach and excellent products advance the evolution of the small business insurance space and are a welcome addition to the streamlined process for providing multiple competitive insurance quotes for small business clients.
