Related Topics

Marsh has launched its Delta Investment Management Insurance (IMI) facility to help asset and investment managers, hedge fund managers and fund-of-funds managers with professional indemnity and crime risks. 

Delta IMI is underwritten by a panel of leading London market insurers and is available to clients globally (excluding those domiciled in the US). Each insurer can provide limits of liability up to GBP 10 million, USD 15 million, CAD 15 million, AUS 15 million, or EUR 15 million; or collectively they may provide a maximum of GBP 40 million, or equivalent currency.

Delta IMI’s features include:

• Provision for mitigation costs.

• Cover for wrongful professional acts, including those acts by a person or entity for whom the insured is legally liable.

• A narrow “insured entity-versus-insured entity” exclusion, with a specific carve-back for funds.

• Cover for investigation, emergency and critical regulatory response costs (each not subject to a retention).

• Professional indemnity and directors and officers cover for funds.

Neill Harman, UK Asset Management Practice Leader at Marsh, says: “Low frequency, high impact events, such as a product failure, can have a profound impact on an asset management firm’s financial health.

“The Marsh Delta IMI facility has been developed to address many of the coverage issues which have emerged following the financial crisis. Marsh Delta IMI provides excellent protection for the financial, business and operational risks typically identified within our clients’ risk management frameworks.”
