Investment Advisors and Consultant’s Errors & Omissions (aka Professional Liability) policy protects advisors and consultants against losses due to any actual or alleged negligent act, error or omission committed in the scope of their duties as investment counselors/advisors.
ERISA attorneys who assist plan sponsors with their RFP’s and compliance reviews are becoming a driving force behind Investment Advisors seeking clarity on their insurance coverage. Proof of insurance coverage may no longer be satisfied by a Certificate of Insurance (COI). Having affirmative fiduciary coverage should be used as a marketing tool.
