What We Do for Customers
Valuation Due Diligence
Through a risk-focused due diligence process, we analyze the financial and qualitative impacts an acquirer or seller should be aware of including property insurance, employee benefits, retirement plans, key employee compensation or life insurance.
Transactional Risk Transfer
With significant expertise in representations and warranty insurance, environmental risk, and tax-related matters, we build insurance solutions and place policies to transfer risk to third-party insurers.
Structured Financial Solutions
When debt, equity capital or other security is not available, we design bespoke forms of insurance capital to facilitate a transaction.
Comprehensive Risk Analysis
Our process evaluates the financial, operational and enterprise risks of the organization and their potential impact. This process improves the ability to make informed decisions when determining how best to deploy resources.
