Transactional Liability Insurance protects insureds against transactional risk including any unknown and unintentional breaches of the representations and warranties in an acquisition agreement. By shifting the risk of breach to an insurer, all parties in a transaction benefit.

Buyers

  • Enhance the competitiveness of their bids by reducing or eliminating holdbacks
  • Benefit from increased certainty-of- collection where sellers are at a high risk of insolvency or members of a disparate shareholder group

Sellers

  • Reduce or eliminate contingent liabilities
  • Where sellers will remain involved in target operations (i.e. continuing as management), sellers better preserve key relationships through eliminating the risk of contentious claims against the escrow

Target Market

Expert underwriting and global capabilities enable the team to cover a diverse and wide-ranging spread of industries including risks in the technology, healthcare, and energy spaces.

Territories

With our global presence, we have the capabilities to underwrite cross-border transactions and deals with operations in various international jurisdictions including Canada, the U.K., Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Claims

As a risk-bearing direct carrier, we maintain full control over our claims process and handling. In the event of a claim, our underwriters remain heavily involved alongside a dedicated in-house claims specialist.
