    At get indemnity we continue to see soft market conditions for engineers PI insurance with reductions in premiums available, however there have recently been signs of a hardening market with a reduction in the number of competing insurers.

    Medium to high hazard engineering activities may come under increasing pressure to accept premium increases, with less insurers willing to compete. Your PI insurance broker should engage with you early in the renewal process to ensure sufficient strategic planning to obtain a satisfactory renewal.
