We don’t just manage risk, we facilitate deals.

We are a managing general agency specialising in warranty and indemnity insurance for M&A transactions within Western Europe, and global tax risk insurance.

When we began in 2017, we started with a clean sheet of paper. This allowed us to redesign the transaction underwriting process to become market leaders of the region. Our two specialist insurance products give our clients the tools they need to complete their M&A deal and to manage tax risk.

INNOVATIVE

We pride ourselves on being a progressive insurance agency. We think outside the box and avoid being restricted by the excessive burdens which other generalist insurance companies face. This allows us to put all our energy into efficiently assessing specific risks and writing bespoke transaction insurance policies.

efficient

As a relatively new entrant in the space, we’ve designed technology-based, timely and practical approaches to the underwriting of risks. We can provide a first-draft policy and complete underwriting questions within 48 hours from instruction. And only schedule underwriting calls when necessary.

Our specialised focus allows us to understand and serve our client’s needs. We work closely with our clients to build meaningful, sustained, relationships and to provide the best product possible. We consider transaction insurance a repeat business and each time will strive to provide the best product.
