Management and Professional Liability
Jamison’s Alternative Investment Insurance Management Group is staffed by professionals who intimately understand the unique business risks you face in managing your funds in today’s turbulent times. Our ability to clearly communicate and illustrate your risk exposures to the insurance marketplace is a critical factor in our success with delivering the appropriate risk management and insurance solutions you and your investors demand. Insuring Alternative Investment Managers and their Funds, is something we do with great care, and you can rest assured that we will deliver a properly and professionally designed program, through a comprehensive & strategic approach.
Jamison understands the importance of a well-designed management and professional liability insurance program, also referred to as directors and officers (D&O) or errors and omissions (E&O). The volatility in the market could generate greater risk for fund managers and organization errors that could lead to financial losses. When the market and the firm’s investments are performing badly your firm could notice opportunities for disgruntle investors to create litigation that could strain the firm’s resources to defend these claims. Therefore, properly insuring your fund will not only protect you and your managers from unforeseen liability, but it will also promote a healthy environment for investors as they make their investment decisions.
The scope insurance and risk transfer that Jamison can provide to hedge funds includes:
- Management Liability/Directors and Officers Coverage
- Professional Liability/ Errors and Omissions Coverage
- Fund Liability Coverage (Hedge Funds/Fund of Fund, Venture Capital and Private Equity Funds)
- Investment Advisor and Financial Services Professional Liability Coverage
- Employment Practices Liability Coverage
- Fiduciary Liability Coverage
