Transactional risk insurance
M&A insurances cover risks of liability and loss in connection with corporate transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, demergers, transformations and asset transfers as well as the purchase/sale of individual assets. Tough negotiations are characterized by widely differing interest of the parties involved. The buyers interest is to maximize his claims in the event of damage against the seller and to achieve a maximum of contractual guarantees and indemnities from the seller; whereas the seller interest is to minimize his liability in order to be able to keep more of the purchasing price in case of a damage. Misjudgements, incorrect valuations or insufficient guarantees can lead to substantial pecuniary losses both for the buyer and seller. With an integral M&A insurance we ensure that critical issues between the parties will be eased and that risks arising from inapplicable or inaccurate contractual commitments can be shifted.
