commercial insurance package
TORONTO, March 26, 2013 /CNW/ - KTX Insurance Brokers announced today that the company will be the group insurance provider
for ASCII Canada, part of The ASCII Group, one of the largest
independent information technology associations with more than 2000
members and partners worldwide.

As one of the top technology insurance offerings for IT industry
professionals, KTX has worked closely with ASCII Canada to create a
group membership program that offers great coverage options at a low
premium to entice members to carry Technology Errors & Omissions (E&O)
and Commercial General Liability (CGL) coverage.
By acquiring Errors and Omissions coverage, members would be protected
from intellectual property infringement, security breach, privacy
breach, data personal injury, and much more. The Commercial General
Liability coverage on the other hand, would protect members against
bodily injury and property damage, advertising injury, additional
insured such as independent contractors, and non-owned automobile
"We are excited about our new partnership with KTX Insurance Brokers and
Kanetix.ca. We believe it is vital for every one of our members to
maintain business insurance, especially as more of their clients
require it," said Doug Young, COO and Senior Vice President of The
ASCII Group. "The program that KTX Insurance Brokers is offering the
ASCII membership, along with their industry experience, makes them a
natural fit for us and we look forward to a long-term partnership."
The unique commercial insurance package is available to all Canadian
ASCII members with less than $350,000 in annual revenues. If the
member's annual revenue is higher than $350,000, these members still
have the benefit of going through KTX Insurance Brokers since they get
a discount on standard IT insurance products of up to 15 per cent.
