We recently received a referral from a consultant who was asked to assist their client with the D&O insurance buying process. He reached out to us and asked if we can help as he felt his client needed more guidance and advice than they were getting. Who can blame them? Management Liability Insurance is complex and it's not a cheap purchase. Hence clients expect, as they should, to be educated on the product and how it will address their specific risks and concerns.
Our team regularly speaks with emerging managers about purchasing D&O Insurance at the early stages of fund formation and the cost feasibility of such an investment.
