Normally the requirement for such professional services engagement is
10-20 million PI/PL insurance.

Any service provider/contractor will be providing PI/PL insurance for
replacing Exchange.

These service providers get PI/PL insurance from insurance companies.
The insurance costs are normally 1-5% of the sum insured or revenue
from the professional service activity in this case. If insurance
company start charging premium equivalent to the sum insured then they
will go out of business.
