Excess of loss liability insurance

Excess of Loss Insurance (or sometimes known as Excess Layer Insurance) is available to meet the needs of businesses requiring high levels of Public Liability Insurance cover - for example in order to undertake a large contract or project or because the nature of the work requires it.

Excess of Loss is particularly useful for those companies who undertake PPP and PFI contracts on behalf of central government or for sub-contractors undertaking a specific aspect of one of these large projects and who may be required to provide top-up insurance to comply with contract requirements.
