Put your insurance programme to the test
> 95% Businesses found gaps in their insurance cover through our health check
Unprecedented increases in insurance rates, erosion of policy quality, and increases in claims disputes are a few examples of the systemic effects on the ongoing insurance hard market that continues to expose commercial policyholders to the risk of considerable losses.
- Would you be able to recover losses in the event of a claim?
- Are you paying too much for insurance cover that has no value?
- Would a declined claim from a portfolio company impact your fund raising?
Listen to Livingbridge and Phoenix Equiry Partners explain how Mactavish has kept their risk exposure under control and de-risk investments via DD and ongoing risk management of their portfolio companies.
Unique challenges require bespoke solutions
As the insurance market moves towards standardised models, the operational, reputational and financial complexity of investment firms are not well represented. This makes it a real challenge to get the right cover and conduct accurate risk due diligence for new portfolio investments. Poor risk analysis and risk placement can reduce an investment value to zero if the unexpected happens.
Higher risks The corporate and operational structures of investment firms vary significantly and if insurance policies are not tailored to take account of these structures, individuals can be left financially exposed to a claim.
Reputational risks Investment firms attract disproportionately high levels of scrutiny from the media, politicians and opinion formers which can increase the severity of a major loss.
Double exposure It is not always clear if the loss event falls between the policy insuring the portfolio company or the policy that insures the investment firm; a claim can non-only undermine investments but also expose the private equity House.
