Nannycare, the personal policy for professional nannies launched last year under an exclusive arrangement, is now open to all brokers.

Underwritten by SVB Underwriting Services, part of the SVB Group at Lloyd's, it provides cover for public liability, personal possessions, personal accident and legal expenses.

SVB's marketing and communications manager Anita Hawkes said: “Nannycare reflects rising standards in the childcare industry by offering the same personal and financial protection that is available to other professions.”
