3.3 Fund Managers
Asset managers and investment fund managers are at high risk for professional liability as well as crime exposures. They face complex professional and management liabilities and are susceptible to potentially devastating lawsuits. It is imperative that fund managers have appropriate protection for financial liabilities that may arise from their business activities.
3.4 Financial Companies (Banks, Credit Unions and Lendors)
We serve financial institutions ranging from small regional and provincial organizations to those operating on a global scale.
3.5 Private Equity
Private Equity insurance policies are designed to address the diverse exposures arising from the unique structure and operations of these entities. The insuring agreements included within a comprehensive policy should contemplate the following liabilities:
- Outside Director Liability
- Employment Practices
- Fiduciary and Professional Services
Ideally, coverage should extend to the PE firm including management and employees, the firm’s sponsored funds, subsidiaries, as well as the firm’s insureds serving on the Portfolio companies’ boards.
In addition to Regulatory and Administrative exposures, PE firms face scrutiny with respect to fee and expense allocations, IPO and M&A activities, and are prime targets for Cyber-attacks. Portfolio company derived liability is also a concern. In light of the complex risk profile, coverage needs to be placed using specialized and experienced markets.
