Investment Managers Liability Insurance

What is it?

At Cooper Professional Risks (CPR), we understand the complex nature of investment management. The regulatory environment continues to expand and the potential exposure faced by an investment manager continues to increase. The pressure on Investment Managers to meet their clients expectations creates enormous demands which can lead to mistakes.
Therefore a specially tailored liability cover fully catering for the Investment Management type professions is offered by a number of insurers which we can on your behalf.

Who can be covered?

• equity/fixed interest/diversified fund managers
• funds managers
• venture capital fund managers
• asset allocation consultants
• research houses
• private equity fund managers
• property/infrastructure fund managers
• hedge fund managers.
Types that are difficult to obtain cover include mortgage fund managers and agriculture fund managers.

How is it covered?

Insurers may bundle together up to five primary insuring clauses in any combination with limits either shared or separated into the following:
• Directors and Officers Liability
• Company Reimbursement
• Entity Securities
• Professional Indemnity
• Crime/Fidelity
The professional indemnity will normally cover the creation, operation and management of an investment structure, funds managed under instruction, marketing of investment structures or authority, portfolio management and asset allocation services, professional supervision, administration, custodial or registry services, responsible entity or trustee services and any publications.

Crime cover includes internal (employee related) crime and external (third party related crime). External can include theft, forgery, fraudulent alteration, counterfeiting and computer fraud.

Who can help?

An insurance broker's role is to act as your representative and work in your interests, seeking the best cover at the best price for you from market knowledge. Call a good one.

High Court dismisses Business Interruption Test Case

Today the High Court dismissed appeal by Insurers on the Business Interruption test case. Even the big insurers make silly mistakes! But you the policy holder may benefit if you were one of the 40% of Business Pack policy holders that added Business Interruption cover to their Business Pack. While it was never the intent of insurers to cover policyholders for the loss of income from a pandemic, the fact that insurers never factored in a risk premium for it, and the fact there is supposed to be a material or physical loss to trigger the Business Interruption section, none of that matters according to the highest Court in the land. So what was the mistake? Simply that when insurers defined what they considered to be the definition of an infectious disease, they referred to the Quarantine Act of 1908 which since was superseded by the Biodiversity Act of 2015. Because the Quarantine Act of 1908 no longer exists, apparently you cannot draw on this for a definition of an infectious disease? Not one of the insurers picked up on this! Shows how much interest we take on the business of Governments, except what is reported in the media.
