Hedge Fund Insurance Market Update
May 21st, 2018
The General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect this month on May 25. Better known as the GDPR, the regulation was adopted in 2016 to extend data protection and privacy people within the EU. If you do business within the EU, even if your company is based outside of it, the GDPR is set to affect you. While uniformity should, theoretically, make compliance easier, penalties are set at 4% of global turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher. That’s not even including the cost of litigation or compensating victims of a data breach.

As a full-service insurance advisory, Iron Cove is highly sought-after across the investment services sector. Recently, the company was brought on in an advisory capacity by a hedge fund preparing to launch. Understandably, the fund’s COO was burdened by all the early decisions such firms must make. Which vendors should be used? What alternatives exist for employee healthcare? How will the administrative costs break down? Even for executives seasoned in operational excellence, correctly arriving at the best solution can take time better spent tackling mission-critical objectives.
