Insights Based on Data from Liberty Global Transaction Solutions, One of the Largest M&A Insurance Providers, and Represents the Most Comprehensive Review of M&A Claims by any Insurer
BOSTON, Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberty Global Transaction Solutions (Liberty GTS) has announced findings from its inaugural M&A claims study.
"Having issued more than 2,000 policies since 2010 and managed over 300 notifications of warranty breaches across the globe, we are in a unique position to uncover M&A claim trends that can help deal makers and advisors better understand and manage their exposure," said Liberty GTS President Rowan Bamford. "This is vitally important now as the M&A insurance industry grapples with four key challenges: an over-supply in capacity, a significant drop-off in deal flow, an increase in claims activity and the emerging risks caused by COVID-19."
Key study findings include:
"We issued our first claims study during a year in which we have seen a great amount of uncertainty in the M&A space," said Bamford. "It's fitting that it comes at a time when potential insureds - with good reason - are focused more than ever on the strength of an insurer and its approach to claims."
