1. About us and Regulation

Bridge-IPro Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Bridge Insurance Brokers Limited registered number 996284 and
they are an independent insurance intermediary registered in England & Wales. No insurance undertaking has any
shareholding in our business and in turn we have no shareholding in any insurance undertaking.

We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) details of which can be confirmed on the
Financial Services Register by visiting their website register or fca.org.uk by contacting the FCA on 0800 111 6768.
Our FCA Register number is 767068.

Our intention in issuing this Customer Information Sheet is to establish clearly and concisely with you the basis on and
extent to which we will provide you with placing services in relation to each policy which we arrange on your behalf,
unless there is a more specific agreement in writing between us. This document also highlights certain important
insurance practices and procedures that apply when arranging insurance and provides you with more general
information on our services.

We are required by our Regulator to provide this information to you so you can decide if our services are suitable.

We act on behalf of Axa Insurance UK plc when issuing policies.

We would therefore urge you to read this document carefully and use the information to decide if our services are right
for you. If you do not wish our relationship to be governed in such a manner, you need to advise us in writing before we
proceed to arrange the insurance.

2. Explaining Our Service

In respect of risks on the ipro scheme we offer specific products as follows:
Professional Indemnity, Public Liability, Employers Liability, Management Liability and Business Equipment Insurance
from AXA Insurance UK Ltd

Our selection of Insurer is based on product suitability for the trade or occupation you carry on.

We are not contractually obliged to deal with AXA Insurance UK Ltd and review their position in the market periodically.

3. Your duty to give information

Insurance Act Legislation requires you to make a “fair presentation” of the risk before taking out a policy and throughout
the duration of the policy. The duty of “fair presentation” includes the declaration of any material facts or information that
could influence an underwriter whether to accept the risk and if so, upon what premium and terms. Failure to make a
“fair presentation” may result in a claim not being paid & you may lose your premium or a claim may not be settled for
the full amount.

You must answer all questions fully, honestly and accurately.

4. Matching your requirements

The online quotation system assesses your demands and needs and will provide information relating to the applicable
policy/ies available.

Our online system will ask specific questions to narrow down the options within the policy/ies and to determine whether
your risk is acceptable on the ipro scheme but this will not involve any comparison with cover or costs available from the
insurance market in general. We will not provide any information outside the details of these specific policies; therefore,
you will need to make your decision about the most suitable way to proceed

5. Information on costs

Our premiums are normally quoted inclusive of UK Insurance Premium Tax at the prevailing rate. If there are any
additional charges, including those, which are liable during the currency of the policy, we will identify these and inform
you before conclusion of the contract.

6. Remuneration and other income

Our principal remuneration for arranging the insurance will be by way of brokerage commission, being a proportion of
the premium paid which is allowed to us by the Insurer for placing the insurance with them.
Brokerage commissions for arranging the insurance are considered fully earned when the insurance incepts,
irrespective of when the premium for the insurance is payable to the Insurer and are not refundable in the event of
cancellation or early termination of insurance.

We may pay part of our remuneration to parties involved in generating enquiries for our services.
In addition to the above, you should be aware that as a result of arranging insurance, we may receive additional income
from the following sources: Profit commissions or profit share paid by Insurers on specific facilities and arrangements for
a limited class of business/administration payments for work carried out on behalf of Insurers.

We will deal with you openly and, when requested, we will disclose the amount of any additional income (or where that
is not feasible, a reasonable estimate of the additional income or its basis of calculation) from the above and any other
sources which we may receive in relation to insurance we arrange for you.

7. Claims Handling

We recognise the importance of a claim and the information provided in your documentation explains what you need to do.

8. Your duty to retain Employers Liability certificates (if applicable)

You should retain your Employer’s Liability certificates permanently as evidence of cover.

Please note that claims can come to light many years after the actual occurrence/event.

9. Contract law applicable

Unless otherwise agreed, any insurance arranged will be subject to English Law and any dispute relating to it, subject to
the jurisdiction of the English courts.

10. Confidentiality and Security

We will treat all personal information as private and confidential to us and anyone involved in providing your insurance,
even when you are no longer a customer. We will not give your personal information to anyone unless it is:
at your request or with your permission;
a legal requirement, such as by a court of competent jurisdiction, governmental or by regulation; or already in the public

4. Our Services

imposes various duties upon Us. However, in certain circumstances We may act for or owe duties of care to other
parties. We will advise you when these circumstances occur so you will be aware of any possible conflict.
Our service includes:
• Arranging appropriate insurance cover with insurers which meets your requirements
• Assisting you in making any necessary mid-term amendments or additions
• Advising and helping you with any claim you need to make
• Providing services in our capacity as an insurance broker and not as a legal adviser or accountant

6. Awareness of Policy Terms

When policy documentation is issued, you are strongly advised to read it carefully as the policy wording, schedule and
any certificate of insurance form the basis of the cover you have purchased.
It is vital to ensure that any policy Warranties, Conditions Precedent and Conditions are read, understood and fully
complied with. You must ensure that you understand all policy requirements and are able to follow these exactly – if not,
please advise Us immediately.

7. Professional Indemnity

We exceed the minimum FCA requirements in respect of Professional Indemnity Insurance.

8. Disclosure of Information

It is important that you understand that any information, statements or answers made by you to Us or your insurer are
your responsibility and must be full and correct. Your attention is particularly drawn to the importance of providing full
and accurate answers to questions asked about the risk as any failure to disclose any fact or circumstance material to
the insurance or any inaccuracies or inadequacies in your answers may invalidate your insurance cover in part or in
whole. A fact or circumstance will be material if it would influence the judgement of a prudent insurer in fixing the
premium or determining whether to take the risk. Unless you make a full response to questions asked We will be unable
to provide you with accurate advice and you may prejudice or forfeit your rights under the policy/ies arranged.
If you fail to provide Us with adequate or correct information as and when We or any insurer requests it, We reserve the
right to terminate the provision of services to you with immediate effect.

9. Insurer Security

We cannot and do not guarantee the solvency or continuing solvency of any insurer used and you should note that the
financial position of an insurer can change.
A liability for the premium, whether full or pro rata, may arise under policies where a participating insurer becomes

10. Communication

Telephone calls may be recorded.
We may communicate with each other by electronic mail, sometimes attaching further electronic data, where we have
each expressed a wish for that to happen – this includes electronic invoicing.
By consenting to this method of communication We and you accept the inherent risks (including the security risks of
interception of or unauthorised access to such communications and the risk of viruses or other harmful devices).
In addition, whilst We are prepared to accept cover instructions via e-mail during the currency of insurance arranged by
Us, We cannot accept liability for any loss or expense on your part arising from failure of transmission or receipt of such
Notwithstanding that We and you have reasonable virus checking procedures, you will be responsible for virus checking
all electronic communications sent to you. You will also be responsible for checking that messages received are
complete. In the event of a dispute neither of us will challenge the legal evidential standing of an electronic document
and the Bridge system shall be deemed the definitive record of electronic communications and documentation.
We also refer you to clause 23 herein.

11. Fees and Payment

We will arrange premium collection by means of providing your account details to premium finance providers to enable
them to collect the premium, either in one amount or by instalments as agreed with you. Instalment facilities are subject
to status.
Alternatively you may pay us via debit or credit card.
We reserve the right to make administration charges for issuing copy policies or certificates requested by other parties,
such as solicitors or banks. Any such charge will be notified to you in advance.
In order to be able to offer you credit facilities We are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
For the avoidance of doubt, We have no obligation to pay any premiums on your behalf and have no responsibility for
any loss which you may suffer as a result of Insurers cancelling the policy or taking any other prejudicial steps as a
result of the late payment of such sums if such delay is attributable to you.
Non-payment of instalments may result in immediate termination of our services.
ipro and ipro insure are trading styles of Bridge-iPro Ltd, an appointed representative of
Bridge Insurance Brokers Ltd, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

12. Our Remuneration

The method of remuneration for our services to you is in the form of a proportion of the insurance contract premium paid
by you and allowed by the insurer with whom the insurance is placed (known as the brokerage). Brokerage is earned for
the policy period and We will be entitled to retain all brokerage in respect of the full policy period in relation to policies
placed by Us.
We may also receive “incentive” commission from insurers in recognition of profitability of our overall account, premium
income volume or growth with them. Such commission may apply whether our remuneration method is by brokerage or
fee. Your premium is not affected by our receipt of such commission.
In addition We will earn interest on insurance monies passing through our insurance bank account and may receive
commission payments from premium finance providers where applicable.
Notwithstanding the existence of “incentive” commissions We recognise our overriding responsibility to promote your
best interests in the selection of Insurers.
We may also act as a service provider to Insurers with whom insurance has been placed and receive remuneration by
way of administrative fees or commission in respect of these services.
You are entitled, at any time, to request information regarding any commission which we may have received as a result
of placing your insurance business.

13. Client Money

Client money is money that We receive and hold in the course of carrying on insurance mediation activities on behalf of
our clients.
We will hold any money received from you on behalf of an insurer or underwriter in accordance with a written agency
agreement We have entered into with the insurer or underwriter. Where this happens the insurance company bears the
risk of any losses as a result of the failure of the firm, or a bank or a third party to make a transfer of these funds, and
the funds are treated as received by the insurer when they are paid to Us. In the same way, any claims money or
premium refunds the insurer pays to Us will not be treated as received by you until they are actually paid over to you.
Any client money We hold on your behalf will be held subject to a statutory trust. The aim of the statutory trust is to
protect you in the event of the failure of the firm, or the failure of the bank or a third party at which the money may be
held. In such circumstances the firm’s general creditors should not be able to make claims on client money as it will not
form part of the firm’s money. The fact that We hold client money on trust gives rise to fiduciary duties which will be
owed to you until the client money reaches the insurer or product provider. The terms of the statutory trust do not permit
Us to make advances of credit from the trust to meet your premium obligations before We receive premium payments
from you. In the same way, We are not permitted to pay claims and premium refunds from the statutory trust before We
receive payment from insurers. We are not entitled to use client money to pay commissions before We receive the
relevant premiums.

14. Segregation of Client Money

We keep client money separate from our own money. We may do this by paying it into a client bank account.

15. Interest on Client Money

Any interest earned on client money held by Us and any investment returns on any segregated designated investments
will be retained by Us for our own use.

16. Unclaimed Money

From time to time clients move addresses or for other reasons lose contact with Us. Where this occurs, and a balance is
due to a client, We will continue to hold such money in a segregated account for a period of six years from the date of
the transaction. After that period We will cease to hold that money, as money specifically allocated to the relevant client
and may transfer it elsewhere. We will continue to maintain a list of transactions affected and undertake to make good
any valid claims occurring after the six year period.

17. Payment to third parties

Under FCA regulations We must inform you that in arranging/managing your insurance requirements We may transfer
money that you have paid to us as payment of an insurance premium to another insurance intermediary.
By accepting these Terms of Business you are giving your consent for Us to act in the manner described above.

18. Bank accounts

Client money will be deposited with one or more approved banks.
We may hold money in a bank account outside the UK. In such circumstances the legal and regulatory regime applying
to the bank may be different from that of the UK and, in the event of a failure of the bank, your money may be treated in
a different manner from that which would apply if the money was held by a bank in the UK. You may notify Us if you do
not wish your money to be held in a particular jurisdiction.
ipro and ipro insure are trading styles of Bridge-iPro Ltd, an appointed representative of
Bridge Insurance Brokers Ltd, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

19. Claims

You are responsible for notifying claims or potential circumstances that may give rise to a claim in accordance with the
terms of the applicable insurance policy. In presenting a claim it is your responsibility to disclose all facts which are
material to the claim.
Therefore, to ensure full protection under your policy or similar documentation provided you should immediately
familiarise yourself with the conditions or other procedures relating to claims and claims notification. Failure to adhere to
the notification requirements particularly with regard to timing requirements may entitle insurers to deny your claim.
Therefore, please take into account any claims reporting instructions provided as failure to report a claim in a proper and
timely manner may jeopardize the operation of your cover. In addition you should retain copies of all insurance policies
and documentation as well as claims reporting instructions, as you may need to report claims after termination of a
You should not admit liability nor agree any course of action, other than emergency measures carried out to minimise
the loss, until you have the agreement of your insurer.
For specific advice regarding a claim or potential claim We would ask that you contact Us without delay should a
situation arise.
Where agreed We will provide a claims processing service for as long as you remain a client of ours. We reserve the
right to charge a reasonable fee for our services. Any such fee will be notified to you in advance.
Settlement cheques will be forwarded to you promptly upon receipt at our office.
Claims payment will be made in your favour. If you require a payment to be made to a third party then you must confirm
the required payee name and details and provide a brief explanation for your request.
In the event that an insurer becomes insolvent or delays making settlement, We do not accept liability for any unpaid

20. Confidentiality and security

We will treat all your information as private and confidential to Us and anyone else involved in providing your insurance,
even when you are no longer a client.
Information that We acquire from you will not be disclosed, other than in the normal course of performing services on
your behalf unless your consent has been obtained or if We are required to disclose it by the FCA, or by law.
We will take appropriate steps to ensure that any money, documents, other property or information that We handle or
hold for you is secure.
We are required to comply with financial sanctions legislation by checking clients’ identities against the UK Consolidated
Financial Sanctions List maintained by H M Treasury.
We undertake to comply with data protection legislation in all our dealings with your personal information. Under such
legislation you have the right to request a copy of any data We hold about you and to correct any inaccuracies in the
information We hold about you.

and the likely timescale involved. We aim to provide a formal response to all complaints within eight weeks of
receipts of the original complaint. Where this is not possible We will provide you with an explanation of why the
complaint has not been resolved within this timescale and will give you a date on which We expect to be able to

shown in your policy documentation.

Financial Ombudsman Service.

22. Limitation of liability

For the purposes of the following limitations of liability, “you” means you, the Client for whom we have agreed to provide

arising out of our failure to comply with the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (“FSMA”) or any rules laid down by
the FCA.

You agree to hold harmless and indemnify us our directors and staff against any misrepresentation (intentional or
unintentional) supplied to us orally or in writing in connection with our services.
i We will not be liable for any loss incurred as a result of the provision by you to Us of incorrect or inadequate
information or the failure of you or others to supply any appropriate information or your failure to act on our advice or
respond promptly to communications from us.
ii You agree that you will not make any claim or take any action personally against any of our individual members,

negligence of any of these individuals.
iii We will not be liable to you for any loss of anticipated revenue or savings or loss of profit;
iv We will not be liable to you for any loss of contracts or business opportunities;
v We will not be liable to you for any loss of goodwill or damage to reputation;

vii We are required by the FCA to maintain a certain level of professional indemnity insurance and in any event the
total liability of Us and our members, officers, employees or consultants in respect of each and every claim shall be
limited to the sum of £5,000,000. For these purposes, a “claim” means any claim or demand (whether for
compensation, damages or otherwise) made by you against Us and/or one or more of our members, officers,
employees and consultants. If a number of claims arise directly or indirectly from the same cause or event, then
