The Society of British and International Interior Design (SBID) announces its new insurance partnership with Marsh Commercial. The partnership offers SBID’s broad network of design professionals the right insurance solutions to suit their business needs. With global backing and a local focus that comes from its reassuring heritage and decades of experience, Marsh Commercial caters to all businesses; from the freelance interior designers and small design studios to large international practices.

Why do designers need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professional Indemnity Insurance provides financial protection against client non-payment or negligence disputes. If you’re alleged to have provided inadequate advice, services or designs, PI insurance covers legal costs and expenses incurred in your defence, as well as any damages or costs that may be awarded.

The partnership will support members with the insurance solutions they need to provide their professional services with peace of mind. As a large membership organisation of interior designers, SBID professionals have varying needs and requirements right across the UK. Having access to Marsh Commercial’s dedicated team with their wealth of specialist knowledge, experience and advice is vitally important in supporting its members in business; offering additional security and protection in the course of their professional duties.

Dr Vanessa Brady OBE, founder and CEO of SBID comments, “Finding the right partner to provide SBID members with solutions to their insurance requirements was an arduous task. As a leading specialist insurance broker for professionals, Marsh Commercial is the perfect match for our regulated member requirements.”

Holding valid Professional Indemnity Insurance is a condition of Accredited membership for SBID Designers.
