        Financial Institutions

        We combine the best of both insurance and financial services expertise, supporting policyholders and their insurers.

        An increase in regulatory investigations, crime, and product sales scrutiny brings with it a need for genuine sector expertise and experience.

        As one of the largest, most trusted teams supporting financial institution insurers and brokers, we’re best known for our work on insurance coverage issues, including the validity and scope of notifications (including block product notifications), compliance with terms and conditions (notification, co-operation etc.), policy construction, the practical operation of exclusions (e.g. regulatory, insolvency, prior claims), aggregation, disclosure and warranties.  

        We are familiar with the different aspects of the business liability insurance covers commonly purchased by financial institutions, including crime, PI, D&O (management liability) and cyber.  We also provide local monitoring services for UK-based insurers of financial institutions facing insured disputes around the world.

        We understand the importance of helping insurers (particularly in the SME FI space) to maintain their margins at a time of ever-increasing competition for premium income.  What sets us apart is our commitment to providing the highest quality expertise at competitive prices.
