Aon Launches Intangible Asset Cover for Gig Economy Companies

This new NDBI cover protects such companies from events that may have the greatest impact on their revenue streams. “

Fuse protection for the new NDBI product was provided by world-renowned re-insurers, including Lloyd’s of London and Swiss Re.
