Malpractice / Professional Indemnity insurance for members of:

  • Professional Associations
  • Training Providers
  • Affinity Groups

Are you a Professional Association,Training provider or other Affinity Group looking to set up a Customised Insurance Scheme to offer your Members/Students and Graduates? If so, you have come to the right place and Balens have the right solution for you! This forms the main core of our business and we offer customised Insurance schemes with discounted rates in the UK and Republic of Ireland along with several other countries. We have been designing market-leading wordings and schemes since the early 1990s and currently look after the needs of over 350 Affinity Groups.

We can customise your scheme with your Logo, name and any special features you may require. Our software and administration systems evolved over the last decade to enable the smooth administration of high volume / low premium business. Renewals can be safely completed via the internet if required or if by mail, paperwork is speedily passed through our software driven system. Please note that we require a minimum of 20 people to join the scheme in the first year. If you do not think this will be achieved, please feel free to suggest your members, students or graduates join our Individual Scheme.

The comprehensive Balen wording that we would be offering is extremely well thought out and includes a uniquely designed "hybrid" policy incorporating the advantages of a Claims Made and Claims Occurring wording without their disadvantages!! Cover incorporates Malpractice, Professional Liability, Loss of Reputation Libel and Slander, Public and Products Liability plus a comprehensive legal expenses package incorporating criminal defence, discrimination allegations, Inland Revenue investigations, various helplines, HPC disciplinary hearings and many more features.

Our arrangements are confidential, ethical, extremely flexible and can respond to changed circumstances easily. We have structures and systems in place to take care of all Financial Conduct Authority regulatory requirements.  We cover well over 3,500 different therapies and techniques and are regularly arranging cover for new techniques and approaches. 

As we have too many facilities to list here, please contact with us directly, stating your specific requirements and we will do our best to assist. Balens are extremely flexible and can come up with the correct solution for you and your members. 

For potential new Client Associations of Balens, we will need your Code of Ethics and Conduct, training criteria for admission, details of the courses, approximate numbers and your logo. We will then produce a quotation report for you and show you how your new scheme will look.

We also  arrange affinity schemes for groups that are not in the Health or Beauty Sector. Do contact us if you wish to explore what is possible.

We have always regarded advice, quality cover and personal service as our main strengths, which in themselves can save time and money in the long term. Our collective buying power ensures that you get the best value for money and a unique cover opportunity in this very specialised and limited marketplace.
