INSURANCE FOR PRIVATE EQUITY & VENTURE CAPITAL

As specialists in the field we understand the legal and geographical complexities facing the sector and appreciate the importance of strong relationships with portfolio companies and investors. Whether you're a well-established firm or at the start-up stage, our goal is to help you maintain the personal and corporate confidence you need to succeed in today’s volatile economic environment.

 We make it our business to evaluate the potential risks you face, articulate your requirements and tailor our policies to match your specific needs. No off-the-shelf packages, just bespoke, effective and responsive solutions appropriate to your business, sector and territory.

MANAGEMENT LIABILITY INSURANCE

We provide cover for Directors' and Officers', Professional Negligence, Regulatory Investigation Costs, Crime and Employment Practices.  Operational insurances for specifically commercial needs include Contents, Employers’ Liability and Travel.  Keyman insurance and Investor Company Insurance Programmes ensure that appropriate Management Liability cover is available at portfolio level to protect your balance sheet.

TRANSACTIONAL RISK INSURANCE

Mergers and Acquisitions have never been so challenging.  Economic turbulence and reduced credit availability have resulted in fewer buyers and a climate of risk aversion.  Consequently, risks associated with investment decisions are scrutinised to an ever increasing degree and, as such, risk management is key.

In this environment, Private Equity firms must continue to do deals and many have grasped this period as one of opportunity.

Transactional Risk insurance can help facilitate these deals, transferring a significant proportion of risk to the insurance market as well as potentially increasing the Investment Rate of Return (IRR), and satisfying increasingly vigilant Limited Partners (LPs).
