Fund & Investment Vehicles
Insurance for Investment Vehicles
We pioneered the development of management liability insurance for investment funds and advise both listed and unlisted funds, whether domiciled on or off-shore. We authored the Guide to Directors' and Officers' Liability Insurance for the Association of Investment Companies and work extensively with fund managers and fund boards to combine protection for fund Directors with robust governance of the insurance purchase process.
We specialise in the arrangement of Directors' and Officers' Liability insurance for fund boards and can advise both on appropriate levels of cover, and alternative ways to structure a cost-effective insurance programme.
Our products also cover claims arising out of the provision of financial and professional services (Professional Indemnity), liabilities arising as an employer (Employment Practices Liability), costs incurred in the event of a regulatory investigation, and losses arising from third party and employee fraud.
Our specialist Asset Management team is the largest in the London insurance market. The size of our client base means that we have an extensive database of current premium rates and a broad range of insurer relationships, this combination enables us to deliver consistently competitive premiums, even during difficult market conditions.
We have extensive experience of handling claims in these classes of business and unusually for a London Market broker our claims and placing teams are situated in the same location and work closely together. Our claims team also includes an experienced insurance litigator who can work closely with client in-house legal counsel or external legal advisers to provide further support if required.
