Custom-built for UK technology providers, our market-leading cover protects against the risks of this fast-moving industry better than any other policy available.

Chubb’s dedicated, 18-strong technology team is the largest and most knowledgeable in the market.

What does it cover?

The technology package protects clients against:

  • Property damage
  • Business interruption
  • Employers’ liability
  • Public and products liability
  • Professional indemnity and cyber

Whatever a client’s product or service, and whatever stage they’re at in development, our cover fits seamlessly with their risk profile to give them truly comprehensive protection.

Benefits of a dedicated package

One insurer, one policy


Clients can buy MasterPackage for technology companies as stand-alone cover for property, liability or professional indemnity, as well as a combined property and liability policy. But buying a complete package means companies only have to work with one insurer and have a single, easy-to-use policy.

Professional indemnity


The main risk to technology companies is contractual liability from a failure in the product or service they provide. They’re exposed to tangible risks, i.e. those associated with a physical product, and/or intangible risks, i.e. those associated with advice or design, on a third-party basis.

In our experience, over 90% of technology company claims relate to breach of contract. So professional indemnity cover for both tangible and intangible risks is crucial.

Business interruption cover


Innovation through research and development is vital for the success of technology companies, but downtime in operations can result in a significant loss of income and expense. So our business interruption cover protects not only product and service revenue streams, but also research and development expenditure.
