BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Travelers Cos. Inc. on Tuesday said it is expanding in the transactional risk market in Europe by leading a Lloyd’s risk consortium and setting up a managing general agency focused on mergers and acquisitions insurance.
Travelers’ European arm has partnered with transactional risk and tax liability underwriters Robert Brown and Dawn Bhoma, who will provide expertise to the Travelers-led risk consortium, the company said in a statement.
The transactional risk consortium currently offers gross capacity of £80 million ($105.82 million) per transaction, and will cover risks related to mergers and acquisitions, including representations and warranties insurance, tax liability and contingent liability insurance, the statement said.
Under the partnership, Travelers is also setting up a new managing general agency to write transactional risk on behalf of the consortium, the company said.
“Transactional risk insurance is a growing segment of the market, as buyers and sellers increasingly turn to risk transfer solutions to mitigate deal risk and release capital quickly,” Matthew Wilson, CEO for Travelers Europe, said in the statement.
Mr. Brown and Ms. Bhoma had been with Neon Underwriting Ltd., the Lloyd’s of London MGA of Neon Holdings Ltd.
Sales of representations and warranties insurance have been surging globally as more midsize businesses and investors discover its effectiveness in facilitating a clean exit for sellers and reducing post-closing liabilities for buyers involved in mergers and acquisitions.
