Data security

With the ever-increasing growth of cyber-attacks, protecting the vital data you hold is crucial. Cyber insurance can be difficult to obtain at the right level for life science and pharmaceutical industries. Cyber risk management is key.

Counterfeit drugs

In 2021, over 3 million medicines & medical devices valued at more than £9million were seized by UK officers from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority (MHRA). Risk management is key – insurance cover can vary widely and claims considered on a case by case basis. Seeking advice from insurance specialists is key to help identify and control your exposures to such risk.

Attracting & retaining a qualified team

In today’s challenging climate, attracting and retaining talent is proving harder than ever – particularly in specialist and niche sectors such as pharma and biotech industries.

Why do you need specialist pharmaceuticals insurance?

The pharmaceuticals industry is highly dynamic and continually evolving, as are its risks and insurance needs.

Business models have transitioned towards leaner, more focused enterprises, with operations becoming more localised as firms respond to growth in developing markets. Meanwhile, the industry is subject to rigorous regulatory oversight.

To succeed, you need to understand the challenges you face at every stage of the development of your product. Having a robust insurance and risk management programme, designed by specialists that understand your world and speak your language is key. We’re here to help you build resilience and bring peace of mind.
