Multimedia Professional Indemnity

The media landscape is riskier than ever to navigate, but with Tokio Marine HCC you have the expert partner you need.

The means by which we deliver news in the 21st century has changed irreversibly. The explosion in social media has created a demand for instant news and access to content 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As a consequence, the risk of actions for libel, slander and privacy are greater than they’ve ever been before.

With over 20 years’ experience in this sector, TMHCC has the insight and experience to provide the necessary coverage whenever and however you need it.

Whether you are a media creative, publisher or broadcaster, we’re the partner you need to match your ambitions.
